Go, Nate! Does his SLP have him put his bottom teeth on his top lip and blow, to make "f"?
Assembly_Reqd said:I only have a little brag. Nate produced an 'f' in speech this week. With his nose plugged though. Plosives and any sounds requiring moving a lot of air forward are still illusive at best. Checkin: I am trying to stick this one out. I came over here yesterday in a total funk and wanting to reconnect. I am pissed right now. So, I am sorry that I am not able to "Jump ship" on the turn of a card. I am not a fan of the format over there, I am wondering how new blood will get introduced to the SN board over there beyond the people who migrated, and to be perfectly honest I am up to my eyeballs sick of One Direction crap. I can't deactivate anyway since all of the FAQ's are my posts. Those were a lot of fricken work. As long as that content is here, I need to stay here.

DS (first grade, ASD/ADHD/GAD) completed his FIRST SPELLING TEST OF THE YEAR! They have one every week and he wouldn't even attempted one for months, then his teacher got him to just write the first letter of each word, and this week he came home with an entire test completed. He got every one wrong (missed the vowels) but he got the beginning sounds and end sounds correct, which is all he needs to pass first grade. Phew. I know he has it in him. His handwriting has also improved dramatically since starting meds.
Checkin: I'm straddling, sortof. I don't like the format of proboards, but I certainly have no allegiance to TB. I understand the angst over 1D- the gif's and whatnot in the siggys are enough to make my eyes roll out of my head. But, I appreciate all the good advice and diversity of experience. I'm usually feeling like a complete hot mess of a parent and these boards really help reign in my own anxiety and focus on what's needed with regards to DS.
