Speech Therapy

Today I finally dropped in at the Galt Joint Elementary School District office and asked what was needed to have a speech therapist come and evaluate Duncan.

It was a very straight forward procedure. All I had to do was submit a written request and usually there will be a response within 10 days.

When I got home, I wrote a letter requesting for the speech evaluation for Duncan and dropped off the letter in the mail immediately after that.

I did think that Duncan will eventually outgrow his speech problems but since the service is available for free, why not give Duncan the help he needs now? The evaluation is available for kids from aged three upwards living within the school district.

I am looking forward to the response from the Elementary School District and the see how much Duncan will be helped by this therapy.

No, we don't want him to go around saying 'fuck' every time he wants to bring attention to a truck that he sees! Haha.


  1. Kadang anembiak yg bisi masalah dalam speech tuk nemu manah bila dah besai...Well,baka laki aku,masa iya agik mit having difficulty nyebut perkataan bisi 'r'.For example,'orang' alu nyadi 'owang' atau pun 'oghang'.

    Tapi bala menyadi iya ke bukai selalu ngasuh iya blow mulut iya to make the sound 'brrrrr..." and lama-lama ok gak...After sometime,iya empu speech pun normal.

  2. Hi Kak Puteri,

    Wow, they actually provide this service free?

    Wow...Seriously, wow...

    This is seriously cool...They are all out to help the child...=)

  3. Pat,

    Enti tilur tusah agi sida muai bunyi tilur nya. Semadi meh sida consciously make that effort.

    Baka nephew Doug siko, iya udah pegi speech therapy, pama agi tang you can hear iya enda ulih nyebut certain sounds baka munyi American .. bunyi British enti iya nyebut sounds nya.

  4. Hi Daphne,

    Yes, the service is free. Yesterday, I received a call from the speech therapist and Duncan has an appointment with her on Friday, the 15. I'll be there with Duncan so it'll be interesting to see how that goes! :-)
