For starters, it's been incredible to watch him want to engage with people by asking questions.
It's also been incredible to see how more of his family and friends are engaging with him, not just to us to get the message to him. The shift has happened where everyone is answering his questions, where before it would be a lot less impersonal.
Max has wanted to use his talker daily since giving him this outlet to visit with people. For a kid who is stuck in his house most of the time, online communication has always been his most usable way to be in touch with people.
Here are a few of the posts from this week.
He got answers with photos of everyone's dogs, cats, and turtles. And he responded with comments about them all. Except the cat and turtle...we'll have to get back to those.
And finally, he wanted to know if everyone likes opera like he does. It was a bit trickier to ask this question, so I took video of how Max has to go through so many areas to ask a simple question sometimes.
This is the video of how many times Max has to click his buttons to ask the question, "You like opera?"
See, Facebook isn't all that bad. It's opening the world up for Max.
