My dd is very intelligent, knew abc's, numbers, shapes, etc. at age 2. She can talk, but not well. She annunciates well, she just has a hard time processing language and forming her own sentences. She uses mostly phrases she's already heard and repeats those often. Her language development is comparable to a 2 year old. What should I be doing now? And not simply speech, but just to grow in general. How can I help her at home?
This is so frustrating! You know, on many other problems, there seems to be more clear goals and treatments. One of the hardest parts about this is feeling like I have to find help for my child for something I know nothing about with very little guidance. It seems like being asked of me to come up with a cure for AIDS or something. Holy cow, where do I begin knowing nothing about nothing? I either have to investigate things on my own and hope I don't come up with malarky or trust these official people who all along told me she seemed fine until I pushed it. This part of the process sucks. There is no clear path or direction for parents or kids to follow. (It feels to me). I am a listmaker person anyway so this is very frustrating and daunting. I feel much better being able to refer to the veterans (you moms and dads out there) for support. I will be back here often! haha. Anyway, I am still wondering what are really good activities at home that you or your family do? Thanks!
