Sweet Pea's therapy was going real last Friday. I usually sit there and watch them so I can learn all the different etchniques and games and apply them daily during the rest of the week. Sweet Pea is always trying real hard and full of joy. Therapist introduced a new toy (some kind of litle microphne that magnify voice and sounds when you talk in it). Sweet Pea managed to produce 2 sounds (A and OO) and also blew in it quite a bit. I smiled and told therapist that she will blow a lot in an attempt to produce sound. Therapist made a note of it as she thought it was an interesting clue. After that, therapist explained that she might make a referral for an actual speech evaluation as soon as she turn 18months and not wait 24months, unless we start seeing some progress of course. She said that in rare cases, an early referral is necessary when the kids are stalling despite therapy. So I guess we have another 2 months until plan B... I am not sure what kind of other therapy techniques can be used?
