We did it!

April 9, 2008

Well, today we did it and actually went and saw a Speech Therapist Privately for an Assement as we are on the waiting list through the Public System and things went really really well!  The speech therapist that we met with was amazing and David loved her and she loved him!  She went through lots with us and him and said she doesn’t think it is anything other than a delay in his speech and that it is great as in particular situations he know’s he is supposed to say something but just unsure what to say!  She gave us lots of stratigies to work with which we are already doing some of and others we will start to do and do more of….She suggests just montioring him and we are welcome to come back and see her when ever we like but we will def be back in 6 months we have decided to just have a catch up and see how she thinks he is going.  A friend and her husband suggested taking him along to a Paeditatrian that specalises in development and we asked her about this and she suggested to wait 6 months and see how he is going.  But from what she observed he is doing great and the speech will come….Way to go David, Mummy and Daddy are so proud of you!

I will be seeing more of David’s speech therapist as she is actually a Stamping Up Demonstrater and scarily for the credit card she is only a 5 – 10 min max drive away!  She started in cards and has just started Scrapbooking!  I got one of the brand new catelogues and OMG i am so in love with the product!

Well, I will update more tomorrow but just wanted to let you all know who have been there supporting us with David’s speech where we are at at the moment!
