The assessment was going really well until my little friend became tired and bit bored with our learning game (as I like to call diagnostic assessments when I give them). She began to wiggle and asked me when the game would be finished. I held her off for a few more moments with a gentle smile and an encouraging nod, and then continued with more questions.
But then I knew our time had definitely come to an end when I asked her the question, "Say hand without the /h/. What do you have left?"
She paused reflectively, looked around, and then with a great big smile replied, "I know. Fingers!"
