I started this post a few times, but lately I have to say something. Landon is not nearly 2 and babbling with some random words; now, he is almost 3 and it is definitely easy to tell he is way behind in expressive language. I feel like most who spend time with us see how well he understands and tries to talk, but he is so hard to understanding and there's a lot of made up words that seem to mean something, but it's hard to tell. I have had to say things lately. it's awful. I saw a friend I had not seen since Lan was 18 months a couple weeks ago. I told her. I had to tell nannies, even said something to someone, a teacher, the other day who never heard of it. Oh, I had to tell the photographer who took the kids pics last weekend,... Today we have a bbq with friends. A friend of mine I went to grad school with will be there. I will have to say apraxia and she will know what it means. Even SLPs often don't realize that apraxia is often global and often has a sensory component, so we shall see.
Anyways, I have been in hiding,but can't be forever. Maybe next is education.
