Speech Therapy

We already do OT and PT with M.  Now we can add ST to the list.  I took E for a speech eval with a therapist at M's therapy center and he will now be seeing her once a week.  His speech is very garbled with multi syllable words and he tends to leave the ending sounds off.  Sometimes he can't get out the beginning sounds either.  "Frog" sounds like "sloh."  It just depends if the words have sounds he has trouble with.

His therapist sent him home with a chewy tube to gnaw on.  Its supposed to help strengthen his mouth muscles the same way lifting weights would for your arms.  He wasn't so sure about it at first and then decided he loved it.  He has spent hours chewing on it.  I think its fulfilling some sort of input for him right now.  He even took it to bed and laid there chewing.  I was all for it because he chews his fingers and fingernails when he's not engaged in something.  They were infected from it in Ukraine.  Now they are healed and he does it much less, but he still nail bites.  Hopefully this will help with his mouth AND his nail biting.  I was so thankful to be able to get him a time slot at the same time M does PT so I won't have to make an extra trip to the therapy center each week.  Its an hour drive one way for me so this is a huge blessing!

Has anything ever bothered you in life? Do you
have any problem you need to solve? A pending
court case you want to resolve in your favor?
Health, relationship and finance. Welcome to
the world of miracles and wonders, there are
supernatural treasure and power to liberate
mankind from all afflictions. Why cant you live a
life of your dream? Why must you work so hard
and yet earn so little? Why cant you be happy
with the one you love and desire or why cant the
one you love reciprocate and appreciate that
love? Why would the doctor tell you there is no
solution or cure to your problems? Why would
your lawyer say you stand no chance, that your
case is hopeless? Have you been cheated by
anyone or those owing you money refuse to pay
back? Do you need a rapid job promotion in
your place of work? You want to venture into
politics? Now I understand certain things are
hard to believe and comprehend, but all I ask
from you is only 3 days and if you will follow my
instructions and use the items you will receive, I
promise your life will never be the same
again.If you find no relevance in the help I offer
I solemnly appeals do not be vindictive and go
in peace. And if your intentions are to take
advantage of the powerful nature of our items
for the purpose of evil, I will not have any
business with you please be advised. May
angels guide you. All inquiries should be

We witness a miracle every time a child enters into life; but those who make their journey home across time and miles, growing within the hearts of those who wait to love them,are carried on the wings of destiny; and placed among us by God's very own hands. --Kristi Larson
