Parents' sharing

 

"Both of my sons are diagnosed with language delay. After therapy, my younger son developed motivation to imitiate sounds. Whereas my older son progressed from producing limited single words to saying sentences. From my speech therapist, I learned how to motivate my sons to talk and make their speech more intelligible. I can now understand what my sons are trying to tell me. I used to feel helpless when my sons throw tantrums, but my speech therapist told me how to deal with my sons emotion and temper. My speech therapist used games and food to motivate my sons to talk more, and used pictures and tools (e.g. straws and tongue depressors) to enhance speech intelligibility. I admired my speech therapist's patience in understanding the motivation behind what my sons do, and giving them plenty of opportunities for them to attempt. I am shocked by what my sons are able to achieve. From my speech therapist, I also learned to stay calm and tolerate when my sons try to test my tolerance."
