1. Getting There (including, but not limited to, keeping a child who stumbles and falls regularly safe on a 12 foot wide subway platform with likely death beckoning from either side, and the friendly, thinly veiled amateur assessments conducted by fellow passengers whose curiosity is peaked by her abnormal speech).
2. Trying to make a kid who has a hard enough time using language in the first place associate certain meaningful words with absolutely meaningless pictures or with pictures that actually depict something other than the word they are used for.
3. Families who send their children to private, $2.50/minute speech therapists and speak to their young child in another language immediately before and after the session. What are we trying to do here, people?
I love Speech Therapy and am deeply grateful to all of the speech therapists who have worked with my daughter. Just sayin’.
