ds tested ahead of peers in expressive language ... only Renfrew we have full CELF next month ... but ummmm ... bloody hell! grin

(won't mention receptive 'cos it still isn't great but this is the boy who's only been talking for 18 months (5, ASD & Language Delay))

well done to your ds smile

Well done ds, how fantastic! Anything to do with ABA, d'ya think? wink

graciousenid Mon 26-Sep-11 21:18:23

naaaa ... nothing at all wink

Shows the limitations of standardised testing though - ds' speech is still disordered (luckily SALT agrees & won't be discharging him any time soon).

Brilliant news. You should feel proud of your efforts.

StarlightMcKenzie Mon 26-Sep-11 21:31:14

And your ds'.

Brilliant news! Well done.

Absolutely! We had a SALT assessment recently (private, for tribunal - think it was CELF) and ds scored within 'normal' range in most areas. But when it came to the sections testing understanding of social situations, anticipating others' actions, etc he was around 18 months delayed.

The tests done by the NHS SALT (who saw him once for the statutory assessment) were nowhere near as in-depth as this, with no formal assessment of anything relating to social understanding etc. Consequently he was judged to be within normal range in expressive language, and he has no SALT provision other than 3 'advisory' reviews a year in his statement.

Anyway, sorry to hijack with a rant blush

Great achievement by your ds, esp considering his language delay (probably more relevant to this than the ASD??).

yeah, his language issues are more fundamental than the ASD imo - we've recently reintroduced signing even though he is very verbal.

grin Great news! Well done on the hard work! Clever DS! grin

Just wanted to say 'Hurrah'! to you & your DS! (my DD has speech/lang delay, so I can imagine how excited I would be to have your results) - well done to you both! (*Cheers & flag-waves enthusiastically!*)
