Griffin's Speech Evaluation

Griffin had his first appointment with his new SLP and it went quite well, she is so animated and fun and I am looking forward to the summer when she gets to see him again. There's a waiting list so it won't be until about June until they will see each other again. Anyhow, he did great, responding to her questions l. His receptive language/auditory comprehension is at 4 yrs. 3 months, his expressive speech is at 3 yrs. 9 months, and his articulation of sounds is at 3 yrs. 11 months. I think that he is actually doing better than what these scores reflect but it was just a test and he was distracted by her toys and kept wanting to play with the LaLa and Barney toys so he wasn't as focused as he could have been.

I am not feeling like writing much today so I am going to make this a short post. I will write again soon. I am about to switch over to the new blogger and I am so afraid that everything is going to disappear, like my blogroll because someone told me that it would. If something happens then you can find me at Griffin and Autism .

I hope that the link works and if everything goes awry then I will see you on my new blog and be weeping for the loss of my old blog. I found that I still cannot comment on your blogs and I am certainly missing that, I even tried to use the Griffin and Autism account and it didn't work still. I don't know what's up.

Amy from Colorado, I have been having problems with my e-mail account, I have Incredimail and it's not working properly. You can send the e-mail to and I will get your e-mail there. If you don't mind, leave me a comment and let me know that you have sent it, that way I will know to check my mail. If anyone else would like to send me an e-mail feel free to write me, I would love to hear from you and open the lines of communication. Thanks for writing Amy, I look forward to hearing from you.

I was fearful about changing to BEta as I read of so many problems, but it was plain sailing for me and much easier once you're there.

Glad to hear that speech went so well. We had a similar [much greater ] discrepancy with the boys, but a good speech pathologist is a great boost for everyone.
