TJ’s parents are proud of him because he has so many skills. He is two years old and knows how to match letters, stack blocks, and run very fast. However, TJ needs help responding to his name and saying words. He notices that other kids in his class can say more words than he can, but he never feels bad about it. TJ’s mommy and daddy teach him that everyone learns at their own pace.
They encourage him to appreciate his unique skills. This motivates him to keep trying to communicate better every day. With the help of his parents and teachers at daycare, TJ not only learns to tell others when he is hungry or thirsty, he also learns his name.
