My daughter is 3 and 3 months and only just starting to say singular words. She was diagnosed at 2 years by a speech and also occupational therapist as verbal and mild motor dyspraxic. We work very hard with her with little reward its so disheartning as shes a very bright little poppet and tries so hard. The paediatrician doesnt agree with dyspraxic diagnosis so we're off for an EEG next week - other than the previous post hadnt heard of the seizures etc...would love to hear from others. Sometimes you feel so isolated....
My DD is 2 and 4 months and as yet she is not talking. She is saying heaps of baby babble but no real words. We have done hearing tests, brain scans (she had measles at 6 months of age) all of them came back fine. She is sort of seeing a speech therapist (we live in a small town with limited services but we are moving as of 1 July). The speech therapist thinks it might be dispraxia but can't diagnose it until she has 20 to 50 words.
I will be watching this thread to see what other people say. It is so heart breaking as I think she is starting to get that she can't talk like we can as she tries to tell us something and we don't understand so she gets this look on her face and grabs our hand and takes us to show us what ever she is on about.
One question, what is an EEG?
