Okay so brief description of DD who is almost 4 (3 years 10 months) she has ASD, possible ODD & ADD. Investigating SPD (though I think that wraps in with the ASD? Not sure)
She has a speech assessment the other day & the Speechy was quite happy (Whoo hoo!) great vocabulary just difficulty processing auditory input & difficultly selecting nouns (eg she talks ALOT but it's all descriptive words, insted of asking for a drink she might say 'i want an orange bottle?' (Her drink bottle)
The Speechy also noticed some parroting (can't remember the word starts with Ecc) and stuttering.
I have heard it's normal for 3yos to stutter though. So my question is
1. If your pre-schooler stutters/stuttered, how often did they do it, was it everyday or every now and then? and when did they stop?
2. Does your preschooler ever just repeat what you say? And if yes, is it daily or occasionally.
DD gets stuck in repetitive loops (verbally & playing) and I've been thinking she does this (repeats me) just to 'fill' the convocation because she doesn't know how to move forward with it. She's only started repeating phrases in the past couple of months.
And just to clarify, I don't mean reaping something I said at a later date, I mean
DD "What's this?"
Me "you know what that is, it's a carrot"
Dd "it's a carrot, it's a carrot, its a carrot"
Tone can and does change.
