If its ok going to pop in now and then. My son is going to be assesed for his speech by First WOrds soon. Sending the aplication in today. I took him for pre assesment yesterday and they are recommending a full assesment. It has been a concern of mine for a while and the dr said not to worry. Now that he has started jr k the teacher recommended to have him checked to. Joshua has been slower getting going with his talking, crawling and walking compared to his older sister. I am hoping First words will help him unnunciate his words btter so he can speak more clear. He will be 4 or Dec.11.

Some oral motor exercises should help. When you all go for the assessment, ask the therapist to give you some exercises you can do with your child at home. Also ask her to demonstrate them so you'll know exactly what to do.
