Una terapeuta del lenguaje de California (EE.UU.) le ha enseñado a su perra a expresarse a través de un dispositivo de comunicación alternativa. Christina Hunger, de 26 años, diseñó un teclado personalizado con botones que su mascota, de nombre ‘Stella’, presiona para transmitir no solo palabras, sino también sentimientos.

Hunger inició el entrenamiento con ‘Stella’ cuando esta tenía tan solo 2 meses de edad. A ahora, 16 meses después, el can es capaz de ‘expresar’ 29 palabras e incluso formar oraciones hasta de 5 palabras. Por ejemplo sabe indicar cuando tiene hambre, quiere salir a pasear o pedir ayuda, también puede combinar las palabras ‘feliz’, ‘pelota’, ‘querer’ y ‘afuera’.

Last night, right before this video was taken, I accidentally said “ball” on Stella’s device while I was actually reaching for a different word. But, Stella took this very seriously! She picked up her ball, dropped it on her device, and said “Good” (Translation: Good idea, Mom!) • I started recording right after she said “Good” and caught the rest of her thought: “Happy ball want outside!” • Like all AAC users, Stella thrives when we talk to her using her device and say words that she loves. She never needs to know it was on accident! 😉 • • • • • #hunger4words #stellathetalkingdog #slpsofinstagram #speechtherapy #AAC #ashaigers #slp #corewords #SLPeeps #slp2be #aacawarenessmonth #earlyintervention #languagedevelopment #dogsofinstagram #dogmom #doglife #dogs #animalpsychology #doglover #dogvideos #sandiegodog #catahoula #blueheeler #smartdog #dogcommunication #mydogtalks #animalcommunication #interspeciescommunication #loveanimals

La especialista utiliza su cuenta de Instagram y su blog ‘Hunger for Words’ para documentar los progresos de ‘Stella’ y comenta que la forma en la que la perra usa y combina las palabras es “realmente similar a la de un niño de 2 años”.

Stella uses language differently when she’s in a heightened state versus when she’s calm! • Today when she heard some noises outside and wanted to go investigate, I told her we were staying inside. • Stella responded by saying, “Look” 9 TIMES IN A ROW, then “Come outside.” She was clearly in a more frantic state, and her language use matched that. We all sound differently than normal when we’re in distress, Stella included! • I’m impressed that Stella is communicating with language during her more heightened states, not just when she’s calm and in a quiet space. This shows me that words are becoming more automatic for her to use. It’s similar to when a toddler starts using language to express himself during times of frustration instead of only crying. That happens when it’s easy for the toddler to say words, not when he’s still learning and it takes a lot of focus to talk 🧠🗣 • • • • • #hunger4words #stellathetalkingdog #slpsofinstagram #speechtherapy #AAC #ashaigers #slp #corewords #SLPeeps #slp2be #earlyintervention #languagedevelopment #dogsofinstagram #dogmom #doglife #dogs #guarddog #animalpsychology #doglover #dogvideos #sandiegodog #catahoula #blueheeler #smartdog #dogcommunication #mydogtalks #animalcommunication #interspeciescommunication #loveanimals
