It's been a while since I've posted about her. The tantrums are still there and she shows LOTS of frustration. My parents were quite "impressed" on how difficult she is. But now I know for sure: it all comes from her lack of expressive language. husband and I have no doubt about it. Her understanding of language is quite amazing to say the least. She understand every details, negative sentences, double negative as well. She just does not miss anything. And both in English and French. She has not had any speech therapy in 1 month, her Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) is droping all the kids in our area according to rumors. Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) does not return our phone calls! It is so unbelievable that an Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) would have such unprofessionalism. Sweet Pea's Special Education teacher was also shocked to hear that Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) had been telling parents that the kids were "age appropriate" and "did not need therapy anymore", all the while not telling the service coordinator!! That is exactly what he had told us about Sweet Pea, and I believed him for a while. But now it is quite clear that Sweet did not have this big word explosion the Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) was waiting for. Sweet Pea is so desperate to communicate, she even creates her own sign language. She makes whole sentences in created signs or common gestures. Her Special Education teacher has witnessed it. I have been saying for month that her sounds all sound the same, but Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) kept on telling me it was age appropriate. I don't buy it anymore. She really seem to struggle to position her mouth and imitate sounds. the "G" sound is near impossible for her. The "F" sound extremely challenging. Just to name some examples. She is being tested by Early Intervention tomorrow. I'm quite curious to hear what they have to say about the discrepancy between expressive language and comprehension. I feel she is trapped in her own head, has all those thoughts but can't share them. Not a nice position to be in. Tomorrow will bring some answers hopefully.
