my oldest did not speak till he was 5.5 yrs old and now he is talking and doing ok still has trouble with language has put him about 4 years behind his peers.



The other one of mine is a severe asthmatic, with learning troubles in school, not sure yet could be ADD and possibily dyslexia as well.

Yes that is very true... My oldest gets very frustrated now as he knows he cannot do the same as his peers. The school here has him in a life skill program now .. which he is really enjoying as it is hands on and more to what he will do out in the reall world. He is also very imtemidated to speak in front of people he does not know or even in front of his class as he thinks people are going to make fun of him. It has been a struggle but with lots of hard work he is starting to make some progress. Time and patience will do wonders for him I think and to get him out in the world with hands on things we really feel he will do well.

Wow do you mirror me!!! My oldest is 14 with asthma and learning disabilities and my second did not speak a word until she was almost 3. Of course this caused certain muscles in her mouth to not mature and then there goes the language, beginning spelling and writing!! As long as you are on top of things, have a child study team look at both of them and constantly work at it you will help them achieve. My kids teachers told my I am their best advocate and it is true. Good luck!
