Liv

Liv had her 1st "Speech Therapy" session on Monday. There are 2 women who come to the house for 30 minutes, once a week. The first visit went well. Katie (the intern) played with Liv, while her teacher Megan and I talked. She asked lots of questions, and after assessing Liv, she gave me her "preliminary results".

She thinks that Liv's receptive language (understanding language) is wonderful...actually above average.

But, her expressive language (talking) is around a 15 month old. That is 1 year behind her age of 27 months.

I look forward to seeing the progress that she makes!!!

She sounds like Grace... understand everything you tell her, but can't say what she wants to correctly.

I hope the therapy goes well. We love it!

I think it would be interesting to listen to/watch the therapy session. I wonder what kind of techniques they will use(?)

I remember knowing a little boy who didn't "talk" until he was around four, and when he started talking he spoke like he'd been speaking for years. He told his Dad that he "didn't have anything to say" earlier.

Maybe when Olivia starts, she won't stop? tehe
