My Observations On Children And Adults

Decent Essays
I thoroughly enjoyed doing my observations with the many children and adults I got to see. This was one of my favorite parts of this semester I am looking forward to the future!

He also did an expressive drill for articulation. I noticed when he said one of his words ‘inventory’ he added an “a” at the end of it so it would be ‘inventorya’. The next thing Ben did was read books made by his Speech Language Pathologist from an app called Pictello. These books were made for him and they told about each of his jobs and what he did at those jobs. Ben has many jobs currently and has had a few different jobs in the past also. He works at the high school he attended and that is where I got to observe Ben also. Some of his jobs at the school include: washing
