William loves this old toy that one of his therapist has called Tommy the Telephone. (I have looked for it on eBay, but have not found one yet. Oh well, I guess if we owned one it would not be near as cool when he therapist brings it.) First William holds the phone's hands, which are heat activated, then it rings and makes an animal sound. We then help him find the animal that makes that sound and ask him to put it in the phone's opening in the back. When his therapist first brought this toy in the fall, it was an instant hit with both William and Juliet. Although she is not in this video, Juliet usually helps William match the animal to the sound. William is always super serious about all the tasks that are involved in playing with this toy. He loves it so much he could probably play with it for the entire duration of his hour session, but it is usually saved for the end.
