Today I received this email from a mom and I wanted to share…
Four months ago I noticed my daughter didn’t talk as well as other childrend her age. After visiting our local school district for a speech eval, I was sent home and told she was fine and would have a “word burst” any day now. I wasn’t comfortable with the “wait and see” idea, so I turned to the internet and THANKFULLY found your website. From your site alone, I was able to educate myself and understand my daughter’s problem was a language issue, and she was way over due for her “word burst.” It prompted me to get an assessment with a private SLP, and we then found she does have a moderate expressive language delay that is not going to correct itself!
As expected, it gave me many great game ideas. Infact, my daughter found your voice so engaging, she kept coming into the room to view the video with me. I could tell she really wanted to play the games! But perhaps the most valuable thing your video taught me was that raising a child with a language delay is different and it’s hard! My daughter and I are both frustrated all the time, so it’s my job to keep it together and to fill in the communication gaps. I needed to be reminded of that, and I am a better parent today because of it. Thank you so much for your wonderful website and videos. Thank you, thank you!”
