Can someone please describe their sessions with a speech therapist?
My son is a former 26 weeker, 1lb 6oz & spent 14 months in the hospital. He was on the ventilator about 8 months. He is now 28 months old. He makes sounds such as ba-ba, pa-pa, da-da, but NO words. He is also blind, so it's amazing he can figure out the sounds we are making, since he can't see our mouths move. He had a speech therapist, but we mainly focused on feeding. We do a lot of turn-taking with sounds. What else can a speech therapist do for him? We do not currently have a speech therapist & wondering if I should wait until he is talking a little more?
If you can please share your experience it would be appreciated.
