Amber in AUS Posted September 15, 2012 Share Posted September 15, 2012 Possum who is 2 in 2 weeks is speech delayed. We have been seeing a useless speechie provided by the state for a year. Her advice is read books and he will get there, umm, it's not happening. I've been phoning around many of the private speechie's both locally and in the city for the past month and there is a long wait to see anyone, 3-6m. In the meantime we need to start doing more. Are there any books you can recommend that i read that might give me some techniques or methods or advice on what i can do for him? Are there any ipad apps that you can recommend that we can use together with him? We have a language rich home, i play 1 on 1 with him, we read books, i've been teaching him some signs as the frustration level continues to rise. He does not have a formal diagnosis of anything. The suggestion is his delay stems from his prematurity, born at 25w. Many thanks for any help, advice or suggestions you can offer. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
