I have read on here about speech delays. Has anyone had someone tell you that it is apraxia? This is what they are saying is possible for my 4 year old. She has been in a special ed-preschool and has made wonderful progress. Just to give you a picture. When she first started back in Aug. she had the speech of a one year-old. She knew only a dozen words yet was obviously very smart and could understand people with no trouble and could manage to get her point across 98% of the time. There were some emotional problems, but we have changed school districts and she has been doing well. O.K. Well my question is this? Are there any special things that I need to know about. I don't want the school people just telling me a bunch of nonsense just to get their hands on my child. Have any of you ever hand any major issues with school personal just saying that there are problems when there really aren't? Her school is also trying to say that she needs to "socialize" more and I don't agree with that I just want her to be able to talk. Right now she can't even say her own name. I also have a son that is about to turn three who has the same speech problem if not worse so he will probably be in school next year for at least speech. I am already having problems with this because I don't think that he is ready for a classroom and I am the only one who thinks this? How do you deal with standing up to teachers who don't agree with what you think is best? Especially if you have no one to back you up? Thanks, sorry so long.
