Went to OMS today to test our prototype with “A”. Successful in a way yet not ground breaking. We were able to have him interact with our prototype yet only a few events of spontaneous word generation. We recorded the entire session and from it we will be able to extract some more information about the specific triggers for this generation of words. Word repetition and generation when prompted was not a problem.
After the testing session we interviewed Marina and the feedback was that this kind of prompt to comment has been applied on him for the past years with limited success. He has shown gains yet we still have to think outside of the box to find some way for him to generate words and transfer this ability to his daily activities. Something that would be practical and promote a degree of independence for him.
