my two and a half year old has a speech delay. We are using a speech therapist fortnightly in the home.
when the therapist is here she basically plays with my two year old with her toy animals ....and that is it. No real explantion of what she is doing, what she wants to achieve, what she wants me to do?
I know it is difficult to "teach" a toddler to talk - but i am feeling as if this therapy is totally worthless.
Is there anyone else out there getting speech therapy for a toddler? I would love to know what your therapist is offering to help your child talk - at this rate i am thinking of canning it and finding someone else. We have had her for about 6 months and i really have no idea of what they are supposed to do so i have nothing to compare it to.
Thanks in advance
