I used to be a more regular poster on here. My son was dx with Apraxia and an Expressive Speech Delay when he was a little over 1. He was in Speech 2x weekly for almost a year and did amazing. He's 4 1/2 and never stops talking now, even in his sleep.
Now we are dealing with behavior issues. He acts out at school and home. I hired a behavior specialist to come and observe him in our home and at preshool. The assessment we were given is that his behavior does tie back into his past speech issues as well as sensory issues and problems with transition and fears of many things. When he's not comfortable or fearful he acts out aggressively because things get to just be too much for him.
The specialist said that I am going to be dealing with these issues ongoing throughout his life. He's a very smart and caring child. I think he's also on the road to ADHD but I keep being told it's too early to tell (I can tell). I was told that sensory intragation will be a huge part of his day to day life.
I'm not sure that my H is going to be able to handle all of this information. He thinks our son just is a bad listener and misbehaves and that since I'm a social worker I'm making excuses for him. This will have an impact on a marriage that's already struggling.
I'm looking for support and to reintro myself.
