Well, last week Tasiya took a fall out of the cart at the store and hit her head. We went to the ER. They did a CT Scan and she is fine but while we were there the staff kept putting there feet in their mouths. They would ask me if she has been complaining about pain and I would tell them she couldn't talk and they would looked shocked and then ask me there was a reason for the delay. It hurt more having to tell them I don't know yet.

Also, Tasiya is SUPER shy. She has been since she was a baby. She would start screaming when ever the doctors or nurses would walk into the room. One nurse asked asked me what I did to her! I told her nothing that is just who she is. I have another daughter who is 4 and she is the most outgoing lovable girl in the world. They are night and day. The same nurse also had the nerve to tell Tasiya. "Not to worry. No one is going to take you away" She is not worried about that! She just doesn't like strangers!

Some people just don't understand. If they meet someone who doesn't fit their "mold" they don't know how to handle it and end up saying something which makes them look a fool.

I completely agree. I find it happens more so with people in the medical field.
My son has spastic quad. cerebral palsy and he can only say a few words. I can tell a hospital staff he can't talk much and they actually still ask me why.

I'm so sorry you had to go through that experience. It can be so frustrating.

Fortunately, we have not come across that specific situation, though I usually preempt it by saying this is what my dd has and that is why she doesn't speak well. The sad part is though, I still feel i need to address that issue every single time we go to a place like that (ER, restauraunt, things like that) just because people make some really incorrect assumptions and then you as a parent get made out to be the bad guy.
