I'm really uptset right now. I feel it is a complete waste of time and negative reinforcement. The Speech Language Pathologist (SLP)'s plan is to learn one letter each session, write them, sound them out, etc... In between session, V is supposed to do the letter is learned on a work sheet. Today was letter C. And V was totally out of it. Could not answer simple questions, stare blankly. If Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) asked "what letter is it" V would answer "what letter is it", or not answer at all, or saying whatever crossed his mind. Poor eye contact. Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) kept asking him to look at him. At felt it was torture and pointless. Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) told me we have to do it everyday and was a bit disppointed when I told him we had not done letter B this weekend. Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) told V it is only a few minutes of his time... True, but if V is not ready for it, I know I won't get anything out of him: just agravation. And then my question remains: what's the point??? How is that going to help is communication?? Why can Sweet Pea learn and have fun at the same time. But it is so boring for V. Then Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) is so precise on letter formation, I think it is ridiculous. If it looks somewhat like a C, then I say good enough! V can't learn to what he does not relate. And let me tell you : he does not relate to letters or letter sounds! A few more sessions like that and we call it quit. Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) has not accomplished a thing since starting therapy in February.... And he does not deny it. This "great" new plan was supposed to work... husband thinks we should stick to Occupational Therapist (OT) and forget the rest for now. He functions like a 3 year old, we need to play and interact with him at that level if we want progress. At least, that's what husband believes. I don't know what to think anymore. And then I do all I can to stay patient with him. But it is so hard when V does not understand much. I always have to explain and show things a million time. Over and over and over... At night, I'm burned out. I just want the questions to stop. Done with my vent! But do you think this Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) is who we need?? And keep in mind, he is the only one in the area (although I might be able to ask Sweet Pea's Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) if he would be available... he is through Early Intervention, so I'm not sure).
