Speech update.

Aidan is talking more everyday. He is starting to make whole sentences, with 4 or more words. He pronounces most things pretty well. But he is still way behind other kids his age. I'm sure he will catch up sooner or later. He gets frustrated, and starts to yell when he isn't understood, or when he doesn't quite know how to say what he wants. Getting him to calm down and use his words for what he wants or to show us what he wants can be quite a chore. But we have to do it, if we want him to talk more and yell less.

He loves his Thomas the Train stuff, so some of his advancements have been made concerning them. He has a wonderful memory which helps a lot. I'm waiting to get an evaluation until we have a place of our own, it seems like most of the speech therapy is done in the home, and since we are staying in the RV until Mom can sell it, and then will live in a camping trailer when she gets it, I'm a bit hesitant to have anyone like that over. I don't know, maybe I'm just being paranoid. I don't want them to get any ideas about taking Aidan away. Not that I've ever had anyone even suggest such a thing, I just worry about it.

Everyone I know that has speech children does it in the therapist's office, not in the home.

Really? Maybe I'll have to call and find out. Early Intervention in California come out to the home to do the evaluation. Something about the child being more comfortable. I guess it might differ depending on the rules of the State or School district.

Elijah does his speech therapy in a school, I think.

That's good to know. I'll check it out here in Hood River. He is doing better every day. He still gets frustrated pretty easy when he can't express what he wants, but there is less of it now than before.
