N's articulation is very poor. So poor that sometimes i don't even understand what he is saying. His expressive language is also lagging behind. :( It's really worrying me, but hubby and i have decided to take a wait and see approach. Meanwhile, i am doing what i can to help him.
I notice that N likes to stand by the fridge and mumble something, gesturing us to open it. When i ask him what he wants, he would say something which i sometimes cannot figure out (although i know exactly what he wants). So to help him, i printed out these sentences and put it up on the fridge. I got him to read it out for me (he has no problems reading) once through. The next time when he wants something from the fridge, i will get him to read aloud the sentence that represents his thoughts. I am trying to kill 2 birds with 1 stone here. First, i hope by doing this, he now knows what to say if he wants something. Secondly, he gets to learn to read!
I don't know if this would work or if im doing it wrong. But im going to try and see. Cross fingers for me!
