Hey everyone! I was wondering (more from people with school aged DG children or someone that is DG themselves) what the specific types of speech issues are (if any) they have encountered. My son recently turned 3. She has a large vocabulary for his age. He went through a short phase with a stutter, which all of my 4 children did between 1-2 years. But now, in the past 6 months, the stutter is gone but he draws out the beginning sounds of words. It's like he gets stuck on the word and has trouble getting past the first sound. Some days it is worse than others and some days he doesn't do it at all. Anyone else experience this? Or have tips on working with him on it?
Our primary care provider did food tolerance testing on him a while ago and of course dairy was an interolerence, and so was gluten along with a pretty long list of other things. We noticed when he sneaks more gluten in his diet (at the sitter or with grandparents) his speech is more delayed. Any other DG kiddos with a long list of food interolences? Thanks!
These are true stories and messages from moms I have received since I began this journey researching DG in 2008. Sadly I didn't start foldering the messages til 2012 but please see that many are in the same boat as you-confused and with many questions. The post is not to answer these questions specifically but to post to record the issues and questions for the public.
