Speechie & OT

Tuesday, December 05, 2006

We had our 2nd appointment with the Speechie (Kate) and the OT (Mel).

It went really well, Isla did really well, even though she was a bit cranky at first thanks to sleeping in!

Kate is really pleased with how Isla is doing, and said that her tongue tie isn't an issue for her! It was something that I'd always been concerned about, but she assured me that because Isla is able to make "T" sounds it won't be an issue for her. Kate gave us a list of action verbs for us to encourage Isla to use. Kate doesn't think Isla needs any more Speechie appointments, but will meet up with us again in February to see how she's progressing. :D

OT, well, it's all very confusing on that front. Mel has noticed that Isla has 'tremors' in her hands when she's concentrating, and said in order to get rid of them, we need to encourage her to crawl :S Isla's been crawling for 13 months so I'm a bit baffled as to why we need to push her to do it now, but I will discuss it with Michael. Seems like we'd be going backwards making her crawl now that she's started walking with her trolley
