Hi...my name is Lindsay and i am mom to two wonderful boys. Hunter who is 3 and Landon who is just 10 weeks ... Hunter is speech delayed. He was evaulated at 2.5 year by our school district. He sees a speech therapist once a week and will be attending a special needs preschool starting next month. Again this is through our school district and absoultely free. We have seen much improvement in the 8 months he has been in speech. He used to only say one words and never combine to make a small sentence and his pronucation was...well not up to par either. Now his words are sounding better and he does 2 and evne some 3 word combos. He was evualted for other delays, but his only delay is speech.

Hi and welcome, I am Jennifer, mommy to Alexis, 6, who is visually impaired and autistic. She is severely delayed in speech, mostly expressive, but also in receptive.

It is soooo wonderful to hear about the progress Hunter is making. That is so exciting.

Welcome Lindsay! I'm Michele, Mommy to Anastasiya (2 yrs old). Tasiya was diagnosed with a severe speech delay this month. Her receptive was within normal limits but her expressive speech was found to be within 9-12 months range. She starts once a week speech therapy next week on Monday. That is wonderful how well speech therapy has been for your son. That gives me hope that it will hlep Tasiya. I look forward to talking and getting to know you!

I guess i could have included that. Hunter's receptive has always been great, but it was his expressive that was extremely lacking as well. But yes, he has come a long way and i am sure you're daughter will too
