I am looking for any information you might have. My son was diagnosed with moderate to severe dysphasia when he was 2 1/2 years old by a speech therapist who had been treating him for 6 months. He required a small surgery on his ears and his hearing has been completely restored. He has continued speech therapy on a weekly basis and has made great strides. He was evaluated by a child psychologist to eliminate fears of autism and low IQ (his IQ is slightly above average). However, he still is about 75-80% clear when speaking and has great difficulty with his 'sh', 'ch', 'pr
' and becomes difficult to understand when speaking quickly or excitedly. Dysphasia is always accompanied by a learning disability and I am concerned with his progression, especially academic; I am having a very hard time finding any useful, practical info on dysphasia. His current speech therapist agrees he lacks maturity in grammar but feels he can catch up to his peer group within another 18-months - I fear she is avoiding the whole subject of dysphasia. He can count to 50, knows his alphabet in both French and English, can spell his name as well as small words such as 'cat', 'stop', etc., sings all kinds of songs- but what does this mean for his diagnosis? Does anyone have any info that would be helpful, anyone with children diagnosed with dysphasia? I would really appreciate some concrete info.
