The echo whisperer

In recent months, Jadzia has been greatly expanding her speech capacity in English and Spanish.

She does something now which seems unusual (though maybe other folks out there have experienced this, too). She whisper-echoes Yoli and I when we talk.

For example, if I’m reading a page in a book, after I finish the sentence or paragraph, Jadzia will quietly repeat the last word I said (or an interesting word she heard). She does this all the time, whether we are reading or whether I’m giving her a little speech about something.

It’s kinda cool. It’s as if you can see her brain expanding. ­čÖé
