Well, Tasiya's speech eval report came in and it says that Tasiya's expressive language and speech productions are within the 9-12 month age range indicating a severe expressive language delay.
The report says that typically developing children are expected to have an average of 2-2.5 word sentences and a total of 200-300 words.

Expressive language strengths:
-Shakes head 'no'
-Varies pitch when vocalizing
-Says "mama" and "dada" meaningfully

Expressive language difficulties:
-Unable to imitate duplicated syllables
-Unable to imitate non-speech sounds
-Unable to imitate the name of familiar objects


Tasiya is within normal limits for her receptive language though so that is good. She has a hearing test early October just to be sure. She start speech therapy every week next monday.

I am glad to hear that tasiyia's receptive skills are normal. That is great news. I know its a bummer to hear the words severe delay, but at least now you know what you are dealing with and can take appropriate steps to fix it. I am sure it's a relief to have the results and know what you are dealing with. I bet you can't wait for speech therapy to start!

That is good to know she has normal receptive skills. Evan has issues with both receptive & expressive. My eval's didn't tell me it was severe, dos it have to be in a certain age catagory to be 'severe'?

This strikes me odd too. How can Evan be more behind receptive then expressive? Wouldn't he need to understand what he 'expresses'?

I am glad to see you get everything underway!

I think what happens with expressive, is they don't have to be understanding what they are saying. So he could be saying something like I want to swim but not know what that means. And with receptive, part of it is understanding what people are saying so you say go brush your teeth and he does it, or go wash your hands and brush his teeth and he does that. So he may be able to say i brush teeth, but not know what that means or what to do if you tell him to brush his teeth. Does that make sense?

I am not sure how they deem the delay as severe. I just know Tasiya is 2 year old and my 9 month old niece can talk as well as Tasiya. It does make it alot easier with Tasiya being able to understand everything I say.

okay now i'm even more confused! I understand what you mean, totally. But, As a a parent at home with Evan all day long, I feel like he is more delayed in expressive, then receptive! I could tell him to do almost anything and he'll do it, he just can't say it! How weird is that? Of course there are some things that he may not understand, but for the most part I feel he is more delayed in expressive, then receptive. Ugggg.

If I remember correctly, for a delay to be deemed severe, they have to be more than either 33% delayed or 50% delayed. I think it's closer to 33% though.

I found a few links that may help some, as Evan follows directions and what not, I would think receptive seems good, but there a few other things that go with receptive delays as well.
