A British Accent?

IMG_5456 (1)Maybe I have been watching too much of The Crown, but lately, Sonya’s speech has been a bit… fancier. It could be a mapping issue or an auditory memory issue (meaning she is just used to saying words this way and it is habit), but she tends to speak with a British accent at times.

It’s really quite adorable, and I am sure this has something to do with the fact that she continues to speak this way. We likely encourage it.

When asking Sonya to pick up her toys, she responds, “I just cahn’t!”

We are working with Sonya’s speech therapists to resolve the issue. First we show her a picture of a beach and explain that it is “hot” there. Then we show her a picture of a “hat.” Sonya will most of the time choose the right picture when asked. When we reverse the roles her production becomes better.

It could also have to do with her love for Peppa Pig

I plan to bring this up at her next mapping. Sometimes these little issues resolve themselves overnight.
