Jonah's speech therapist today told me that she thinks it's a good idea to start thinking about apraxia as a possibility. I'm not surprised, but also not sure that this is it either. She said "He's such a little puzzle!" An I told her that seems to be the consensus from all of his doctors and therapists. It just seems like there is no one thing that fits. A name for the diagnosis does not matter to me, I just want to make sure that he is getting the correct treatment and that we are doing what we can to optimize his therapy sessions.
She was really happy with his improvement, but also gave me the reality that there is a lot further to go down this road.The last two weeks, he has been using words. I was so excited to tell her! He said poop and stinky (LOL) but only in one instance and not again since, and he has been using the words "doggie" "ball" (for anything relate to basketball-the kid is obsessed) and "git" for milk. I really am amazed- totally and completely amazed- that he started doing this. And I went in today all excited. She was happy to hear that he's made so much progress, but at the same time was also very grounded and realistic. She wasn't downplaying it at all, she was just reminding me that we aren't into the clearing yet. I know she's right. The mommy in me just couldn't help but say "See, words! We're done!" LOL
Click the blinkies!
Thank You, Pattyandthemoos, for my beautiful siggy!
I love it!! I am living vicariously through you, to be honest, since Danny refuses to talk. There are days I wonder if we'll ever get a word, LOL. I've wondered about apraxia too, though at this point they still refuse to mention it, since he's only "technically" a year old when it comes to language.
