Hello i have a little girl that has DD and she has been struggling to talk since she started saying ba ba. Born in 2000 now Shes 11 and her speech is still a little off. The schools are a good help but when i explain to the doctors they look at me like nothing wrong but i know different i have been going thru this with her for years.. The audiologist say she has fluid in her ears and the doc give her antibiotics., Thats all they keep doing? IM please with the school but not the doc they wont even send her to a specialist is it something IM not doing.. I ask questions and i suggest things to the doc but i DONT think IM being heard. BTW being on Medicaid has its downfalls..

 Hello and Welcome to the group!  :)

Have you tried having her evaluated by a speech therapist outside of school?

as being on medicaid does has its downfalls it also helps a lot. The waiting game is the down fall to medicaid. Been waiting on them for something for my son. been roughly 4 months of waiting.... Anyways switch doctors, I have done this with my son, since one of his doctors wasn't really listening to me. True i drive a little more to get to his doctor but the doctor listens and has been very helpful. My son gets fluid in his ears regularly. Not infection but fluid. He has to have tubes put in his ears to help drain some of the fluid because it keeps happening. We are currently waiting to be seen by speech pathologist outside of school.

See thats what i mean no one ever spoke on how to stop the fliud from entering so now i will change docs and have her sent to a specialist then ask about her option on stoping the fluid from sitting there.... Thank you very much.
