 So Josiah's been in speech therapy since he was 5. Before Kinder. he's has some speech delays, I wouldn't even really call it that. He pronounces word incorrectly. He's doing much better, he's still in speech therapy. Once he went to grade school they enrolled him at my request. He goes once a wk. Anyways he had a hearing test when he was 5. Not a regular hearing test. They put him in a sound proof room and do special test. I felt when he was 5 he didn't he really understood it. Now that he's 8 he shouldn't have an issue. Just taking another step just to make sure we don't have to change anything and we are going the right direction. I took speech therapy since I was in 5th grade. So I know what he's sort of going through.

 

****UGH!! I'm so bummed out! So I got a call from the Audiologist right now. She's sick! She said this is the first time in 3 years she's had to call in sick from work.. of course. So Josiah has his new apt for the 12th at 8:30. Just really a pain. JJ had to drop off Aloria at school then drop me off at work. Told Josiah he wasn't going to school, by the time he got out of his apt half the day would have already been gone. I already called him into school so it was all a waste. Oh well.. He's going to have daddy time today.

We are going through the same thing with Al'Lan right now. In fact we have another meeting tomorrow morning with the school. I am trying to get him an IEP for speech and they don't want too.
Good luck with your son.

Nope because it cost the school money. I feel he would of.slip through the cracks if I didn't fight for an iep. His teacher was pregnant of didn't want to start anything before she left on maternity leave. She then came back and told me she may retain him. Girl I call the school district and gave then one week before taking it to the dept of education

You have to do what you have to do girl. My 7 year old is also in Speech Therapy. He has trouble pronouncing some stuff and speaks "differently" then other kids his age. It's good to know that the speech therapy works because, he has only been doing it for a month.
