My 4 year old son has had some speech and language issues for a little while and has just been assessed as having a mixed expressive and receptive language delay and disorder. (The report from the speechie says this) He has just turned 4 and has been seeing our current speech therapist since Nov last year, prior to this he was seeing another lady since just before he turned 3.
What can you tell me about your child with this?
I have taken our son to see his paed and he is going again in 2 weeks. At our last visit the paed said that our son def had speech and language issues, but nothing else, he said this is def not autism or ADD or anything like that, he has speech and language problems. Our son has really improved so much in the past year and has a much larger vocab than before starting with our current speechie. He is well on track with all the other developmental milestones (eg. was toilet trained day and night at 2 years and 9months; can ride a pushbike; draw people with head, body, arms, legs, facial features, can also draw sky, sun, grass and mountains etc (LOL) and many other things)
Our GP thinks he is very much on track with all the develpmental milestones, just not his speech.
So I'm just interested to hear about other children with mixed expressive/ receptive language delays or disorders.
