Computer Time

Remember when we were little kids? (I’m talking like you are all the same age as me….if you are, I’m sorry you’re old too!) We played outside, we played board games (remember those?), Barbie, or bike riding.

Nowadays, kids are playing video games, handheld games, or on the computer. Now, I’m fighting for computer time with my 3 1/2 yr old son! He sees one of us on the computer and he wants to play. So generally I let him because it is one of his favorite things to do, and he isn’t able to go play outside without assistance.

Here is a little sample of how good Daniel does with his touch screen monitor on his computer. We have been practicing his numbers, colors and such. Does pretty good for a little guy! Makes me proud every day.

Excuse the poor quality of the video but you get the idea!

Wow, this is AMAZING to see! What program is Daniel doing? Max also loves the computer, it's very motivating. He also loves TV too much--I swear, he would happily spend most of his awake hours in front of some sort of computer screen, if I let him.

Hi Jennifer
its an Elo touchscreen monitor

Its just like the atm machines and stuff. You touch it and it selects your stuff.

We love it, and so does Daniel. I think has helped him greatly with his augmentative device.
We’ve had this one for about 2 yrs.
