Audist are not welcome
How old is he? My son seemed to get it all backwards and inside out until the summer of this year. He started kindergarten and turned 6 in December. I was kind of concerned, but not at heightened concern. I talked to a friend of mine, who was speech path, and she pretty much agreed that he's in the range of normal. (ON A SCALE!)
If I had taken him to Child Find for a repeat testing, he may have qualified for free preschool or have been place in special ed kindergarten this year. I held off because I know my son's personality and yup, six years old and he won't shut up...
But since he was speaking late and developed at a slower rate, he seems to have not picked up on reading until this school year. (Makes sense.) Now he's rapidly growing, but at the beginning of the school year he only had pre reading skills.
Teachers make the best helicopter parents IMO.
He is bilingual...fluent in ASL and English. However, he has delays in both languages. He has a hard time processing questions and cant answer open-ended questions. He must have 2 choices given to him for him to pick the correct answer. If you ask him to describe an event..he just cant do it...in either ASL or English.
He has been on an IEP for the last 3 years.
Oh, he is 5 now.
