3V1054.01 Generalizations: “nightgowns has no pockets on them” (12/11/80)

This evening Peggy came near me, “Nightgowns has no pockets on
them,” she said. Looking at my shirt, she continued, “Shirts does but
nightgowns never do.”


3V1056.01 Counting objects for herself (12/6/80)

What I remember as significant about this episode was Peggy’s putting
her fingers and the number names into 1-1 correspondence. Now she
can “count” (as documented below) but the limits of her correspondence
appears to be TWO. But that fact that she attempts correspondence at all
shows a preliminary grasp of the relation and some sensitization to its applicability.

Text commentary: These clips appear to show Peggy distinguishing between objects and symbols and “good toys,” her Fisher-Price people, to whom she can attribute intentions and about whom she can weave action sequences and possibly stories, eventually.
