Filed under: Autism, Special Needs — C'hele @ 10:40
a. Tormado (Tomatoe)

b. Tomorrrow (roll the r’s when you say it…)

c. Maggots (Magnets)

d. Portado (Potato)

e. (On the phone) – “Hi, Nana? This is Michaela (last name), your granddaughter calling? I just wanted to know…..”

f. She names all her relatives by their titles first (I.e.) Great-Papa “L“, Great-Papa “K,” Cousin “M” and literally call’s them this to their face…(names obviously omitted to provide privacy).

g. (Picking up the phone when it rings): “Yes, hello there?”

h. “Nana, the Bocal News is on T.V.!” (Local News)

i. Glanola bar (granola bar)

j. I know there is more – I just cant remember them all!




  1. I love “Yes, hello there?” I’m going to start using that one. It’s perfect.

  5. Don’t you find that sometimes younger people make more sense with their words? My son used to say “lasterday” (yesterday). And, a friends daughter, upon doing the splits, cried out, “Ouch! I hurt my legpit!” Yeah, the English language could use some common sense kid stuff. FTL, jen
