We had him tested at the public school in our city but we are not in that district so they dropped him from speech classes The other school is horrible so that's not an option. I started teaching him how to read by phonics and he is doing better but I just get frustrated that hubby doesn't understand him AT ALL. My son knows that and rarely even talks to him
It's SO hard for the non-primary care taker to understand sometimes. My son is almost 3.5, but talks at the level of a 2.5yo, and dh hardly understands half of what he says. It frustrates all of us. Is there any possibility of private therapy? I know it is $$, but sometimes it is worth it to help our kids, kwim? But the biggest thing is just... time. Phonics is a big part of it, I think, because from what I've seen a lot of ST is working on phonics type stuff (just not reading it-- just saying it), and obviously you can't snap your fingers and make him talk "properly" It'll take time, but it will come.
