    Oh, I love this! Hooray! Yes, I think movement and writing and visual will all combine nicely to teach what we want.

    (Why *are* pronouns hard for ASD kids? So odd. My daughter called everyone "she" until I started asking her to differentiate between he and she. Now, it seems like everyone is a "he" instead. Argh! And you would think my kids are royalty or something -- they refer to themselves by their names instead of "I", "me" or "mine". It's kind of sweet, but I still correct them.)

      Part of it can be echolalia, part pronoun reversal, part theory of mind.


      For "I" you can make a little social story to help teach theory of mind and pronouns simultaneously. Something like this, one on each page, with a simple drawing:


      When people talk about themselves, they say "I."

      Daddy says, "I am leaving for work."

      Daddy says, "I will see you tonight."

      Grandma says, "I love you."

      Mommy says, "I made pancakes today."

      Daddy says, "I am going outside."

      Winston can speak in this grown-up way too.

      Winston does not need to say, "Winston is hungry." Winston can say, "I am hungry."

      When Winston says, "I" to talk about himself, Winston will be speaking in a very grown-up way, just like Daddy.


      (And then, of course, we must be sure not to talk in the "royal" way ourselves. Not "Mommy will tuck you in," but "I will tuck you in now." ☺)

        Guilty! 😆 It's mostly in order to be understood (and habit) but yes, I need to model this a bit more consistently!
