finally after many tears and heart ache got that bloody form done and its gone off so want as much luck as i can as ds still not getting much help at all from proffessionals so money recieved will help pay for additional help outside of them
just want the best for him but im afraid his just another number to SALT and pre school
so i have many courses through SNAP i wantt o send him on but dont have the money hense i hope our application is successful
anyway have had a breakthrough today all day he has been saying i want instead of xx wants and instead of put in mamas bag he said put in your bag hooray
have seen a difference with his communicating shame he still wont communicate at pre school drives me mad as SALT wants taks set there to get him to talk when i thought she could come to our home and work on speech so once again his left doing nothing
please tell me its not always going to be like this
i have good special needs physician who is very helpful has explained few things noone bothered to tell me about but i just want the best for my little boy and this money would so help
Good luck! I really hope your application is succesful - just think that's another hurdle you have overcome! Horridly cliche but these things def. make you stronger.
My ds wouldn't talk at pre-school either and they didn't seem to believe me when I said he could! He is at a very nice special school now though where he talks as much as he does at home as well as getting the SALT he needs.
The whole dx, statement, DLA business is horrendous but since we've been through those things have calmed down - hopefully will be the same for you.
I have the same problem at pre school. DS1 (ASD) does not talk (at all) at his pre school nursery and I really get the feeling that they think I am just making up what he can say at home. As of 2 weeks ago, he is toilet trained but they still put him a nappy if they go our for a walk - I just found this out yesterday. When he is out with us or nanny, he always asks to go !
I just to try to keep positive. I know I'm not making it up !
Hmm - On the positive side, I feel sure your problem will self resolve in time - hopefully not too much time as he clearly has a lot of understanding of what he has to do
I didn't have this problem, as he was in reverse gear for toilet training. Dry at night, asking to use the toilet out of the home and then finally using the toilet at home. But you always worry, I was worried he would never use toilet at home and I would have to keep driving to Sainsburys ! But he got the home idea quite quickly really.
Good luck Bubblagirl, DLA's just heartwrenching isn't it? Our DLA app must go in the post this Sunday evening, hoping to get some tips and documentation this Friday at DS' team meeting/case conference thingy. Give me a shout when you hear anything back and we can compare response times . Still have no plans for DS(3, AS) re getting out of nappies until we see someone about his chronic diarrhoea. In the meantime, he shows no interest whatsoever.
good luck Bubblagirl. DS wouldn't speak much at his first nursery, but he's been fine at his vastly better and more SN aware school nursery. Well done on the "I"s, my DS has only very recently managed that.
im so please its only beed last 2 days i thought id heard wrong so i was like pardon
"i want a guggy [dummy] so i was like ok yes for 5 mins as was so pleased he asked
then i want a wolly [lolly]
i want this i want that just sat laughing
and he asked once yestarday or told i should say i want a wee wee
and he asked this morning once so its a very good start im not looking for miracles just some sort of progress
makes me feel there is a light at the end of this seemingly very long dark tunnel
and he told me this morning i was a good girl
good luck buckets with your claim i'm hoping after all my tears what i have told them will be enough as really dont want to go through it all again or deal with a denied application
will keep you informed
tc your ds is doing great its been good to watch progress of our dc in last yr and pleased to see how much progress they have actually made ds is now talking so much better no where near 3 yr olds standard but we can joke and understand more so frustration has lessoned
