dc2 has some serious langauge issue, more precisely issues with inference. He was evaluted by a very nice SALT who put him on the 16th centile for inference (All his other scores are between 95 and 65 which shows how big of a problem this is for him). SALT doesn't think it's a language issue as such, she is actually putting it under the 'hasn't been taught appropriately at school' category . I personnally think that this is another sign of AS, even though he hasn't been diagnosed as such (I've been put off doing anything like this by the previous teachers who were all telling me dc2 was ABSOLUTELY FINE)
So my question is, do you think a SALT would be better to support him or would a nice/good teacher plus some work at home will be enough?
dc2 is in Y6 too which complicates things as I'm getting very worried about what will happen when he'll get to secondary.
Star do youu any of them that are better than others by any chance?
I'm not expecting anything from the 'system' but within finite ressources, I need to see where the money is best spent. I can do SALT private but not a lot else. Or a (good) tutor and some books/apps. My fiest language isn't english which complicates things again when you start talking about texts and comprehension.
We had a good inference app. I'm out and about but will try and come back to it. Ds responds amazingly to a half hour of language app a day. I would imagine the effect would be enhanced with someone like your DS as mine doesn't have the +ve structure surrounding the inference difficulty
