@darna88
sis try mo kaya muna ienroll son mo sa summer class kasi with my daughter i noticed dumami ang words na nasasabi niya when i enrolled her sa toddler class kahit once a week lang siya dun kasi madami siyang kasamang bata kaya madami din siya napipickup na words then yung ibang kid kinakausap ko din siya, para din hindi mabigla son mo once magstart na siya sa regular school

my daughter was diagnosed with developmental language disorder predominant expressive language delay, I'm not sure if its the same with communication disorder. When she was assessed by her dev ped her expressive language was really delayed however her receptive language (ability to understand) was advance naman for her age. She started her OT and Speech Therapy when she was 18 months old, and once a week kasali siya sa toddler class sa regular school for socialization. she's 2.7 years old now and she has been recently mainstreamed although she still has speech therapy and her OT will be remove by june. I still enrolled her for OT this summer to improve her writing skills as preparation for her regular class by june. Madaming words na siyang nasasabi ngayon but hirap pa din siya sa pag construct ng sentences. Minsan may sinasabi siya na napakahaba but hindi ko maintindihan but sometimes I can understand naman some of the words. She has difficulty pronouncing letter l and u, though im not sure if its still acceptable since she's only 2. she loves to sing nursery rhymes and reading her books but ang hirap intindihin ng sinasabi niya. Your son is still very young you can enroll him for speech therapy or sa toddler class to improve his communication skills.

Toddler Development and Behavior / Re: Your 2 y/o's weight
« on: August 07, 2012, 12:33:48 pm »
my baby girl just turned 2 last friday and her weight is 13.5kls, height is 35 inches. She's kinda big for her age akala nga ng mga tao nung nag birthday siya last week eh 3 yrs old na. Her dress size is for 3T to 4T na din hindi na halos kasya pag 2T. She's not chubby naman but sobrang siksik and very strong ng bones niya and hindi din sakitin. The last time na  nagkasakit siya (fever and flu that last for 1 week) when was she's 7 months old and. Hindi na ulit siya nagka fever and if may sipon siya the following day wala na din.

to  all moms who are giving growee syrup to their kids ask ko lang poh if talagang 5ml ang dosage? My daughter will be turning 2 this week so shift na siya from growee drops to syrup, sa drops 1ml lang tinatake niya then nabigla lang ako nung bumili ako ng syrup 5ml ang dosage for 2 yrs old, hindi kaya maoverdose dose nun si baby? if dalhin ko naman siya sa pedia wala naman akong ibang concern aside from this. She's also taking pedzinc and taurex mag switch na kami ng syrup this week. Sana may makapagshare if 5ml din ang dosage na binibigay nyo sa inyong kids. Thanks!

I already posted this on another thread, same din with my baby before, at 16 months limited lang words niya and im pretty much worried so I took her to a developmental pediatrician when she's 18 months old, and sabi nga ng dr delayed nga daw so she was advised to have speech therapy for 3 months then balik ulit sa dr. After 3 months her speech improved a lot but still not that much conversational and I took her back to the dev pedia but this time sa iba ko siya pina assess.  She was 21 months old when she was diagnosed with expressive language delay but her receptive language (ability to understand) is advance for her age, pinaka advance siya sa area ng cognitive skills pang 3 years old na ang level niya. Same din dr advised her to continue with speech and enroll ko na din daw sa toddler class. He also mentioned na makaka catch up pa yung anak ko basta tuloy ko lang yung therapy and expose ko lang sa madaming bata and palagi ko lang kausapin. Now mas madami na siya nasasabi and ang dami na niyang alam and kayang i identify. I'm just happy na pinacheck ko siya kaagad sa dev ped. I'm more of a proactive mom. I don't want the lets wait and see approach. Baka kasi maghintay lang ako sa wala. I couldn't wait until may 3 yung daughter ko to see if makakapagsalita ba siya or hindi. It's just my opinion though because every child is unique but if you're really worried pacheck mo din sa developmental pediatrician. The dr can even give you tips on how to improve your child's speech.

@cherieherradura

we went there just last may 31 my daughter was diagnosed with expressive language delay at age 1 year and 10 months old but sabi ni doc madali naman daw makaka catch up si baby kasi nga baby pa din naman siya and basta continue pa din therapy niya and he also recommend toddler class, super laki ng improvement niya overall in a span of 3 months of therapy we started last march and sabi din therapist ni baby by october baka pwede na din siya matransfer sa regular toddler class speech lang kasi talaga problem sa kanya, mas mabilis progress ng bata if my follow up sa bahay

my 1 year and 10 month old daughter also has stranger anxiety, her developmental pediatrician advised us to enroll her in toddler class, before kasi pag dinadala ko siya sa playhouse she'll just cry for the whole 30 mins and she wouldn't go anywhere she'll just sit on my lap but after 4 days ayun nagkapag warm up na din siya she doesn't cry anymore we can stay inside the playhouse for one hour or more and she plays with other kids and laughs with them, the dev ped told me to expose her to other people and children and huwag ikulong sa house, I also limit her TV time to one hour per day, pinapasyal ko siya palagi sa labas ng house nakasakay siya sa bike before kasi if may bumabati sa kanya naiyak agad now hindi na masyado though there are times na umiiyak pa din siya but its not that often compared before, sabi din ng dev ped niya stranger anxiety is very common with toddlers...

@cherieherradura

i'm from batangas poh, im not sure if you can go there personally to set an appointment but if your near calamba doctors you may want to give it a try but if not tawag ka na lang poh sa secretary niya this wednesday, hindi ko din poh sure kung everyday and clinic niya sa calamba doctors but his office is open until 5pm, schedule kasi namin before was friday 3-4pm, the secretary will inform you naman what day and time ang available.

@cherieherradura

it's 1500 poh, assessment is one hour or more depending on the case of the child, here's the number of dr lazaro's secretary at calamba doctors 049-545 2529 / 545 2527, better call them on wednesday because that's the only day they accept appointment calls, ang alam ko poh dr lazaro has his own therapy center but since malayo kami sa calamba hindi ko dun inenroll ang daughter ko, sa school ni baby OT and speech therapy costs 450/1 hr each

@ cherieherradura

sis san ka sa laguna? try nyo poh si dr joel lazaro may clinic siya sa calamba doctors and asian, he's very good, thorough ang assestment niya ang magaling din magexplain, may isang bata dun sa therapy center ng baby ko same case poh ng daughter niyo palagi ko kasi nakakausap lola nung kid since same sila ng sched ni baby, the kid is 5 years old and hindi pa din nagsasalita kahit mama or papa wala, he'll just point to objects if may gusto siya and if hindi daw naibigay yun iiyak na yung kid and maglulupasay, but ok receptive language niya he can follow commands, marunong din magsumbong but through gestures lang. Sabi ng lola niya natry na din daw nila ipasok ang apo niya before sa regular school but walang improvement, right now the kid is undergoing OT and Speech therapy. It's better if you set an appointment na with the dev ped matagal poh kasi waiting time....

@ swtgrl_bee

she just turned 2 lang pala, atleast she can talk in phrases and her vocabulary is growing baka hindi na din irecommend sayo ng dev ped na mag speech therapy baby mo, im also looking forward for my baby's toddler class start na siya on june14 pansin ko kasi pag nasa playhouse kami at may nakikita siyang nagsasalita na ibang bata parang ginagaya niya yun nga lang in her own words but i noticed na gusto niya din makipagcommunicate though hirap siya sabihin through words usually through gestures lang or she'll say it but it's difficult to decipher kasi nga putol yung words or shortcut lang like kanina she says "bah" yun pala butterfly so irepeat to her na lang the correct pronunciation hoping na soon she'll say the whole word eventually....

@ swtgrl_bee

thanks sis, ngayon lang talaga ako nakahinga ng maluwag after the assessment we're so happy talaga, sa therapy center ni baby they also have toddler class, yung OT kasi niya (who is also the school head) eh kilala si dr lazaro and she thinks nga irerecommend yung toddler class so even before our assestment with him eh nakaplot na yung next activity ni baby, for a start her toddler class will be once a week (every friday) and may kasama pa siyang therapist (she'll act like a shadow teacher) medyo matagal kasi magwarm up anak ko sa ibang kids her age pag nakaadjust na siya sa ganon na setting little by little iiwan na siya ng therapist, pag nag ok na and she pass the evaluation sa regular school (kasi may katabi din silang mainstream school) then that's the time transfer na siya completely to a regular toddler class
her OT and speech will be 4x a week (mon-thurs) i believe kasi in extensive therapy para sure na continuous and progress niya.
how's your daughter doing poh? may ilang words na poh ba nasasabi niya and does she talk na poh ba in phrases? sabi kasi sa akin ni dr lazaro with my daughter's age (21 months) she should have a vocabulary of 100 words and can talk in two word phrases like mommy milk, all gone etc. Baby ko kasi isang word lang hindi pa buo and hirap siya magcombine ng two words even syllables, ang nasasabi pa lang niya na two words is sit da (sit down) and hindi pa yun consistent, if i asked her to say starfish, because she can pronounce star and fish eh hindi niya yun masabi as one word she'll either say star or fish lang

update poh...

my baby was assessed yesterday by dr joel lazaro he's really good sobrang sulit ng bayad ko sa kanya and even his clinic talagang child friendly, my daughter was diagnosed with expressive language delay and hearing him saying "don't worry mommy normal na normal si baby hindi poh siya special child" grabe para akong nabunutan ng malaking tinik sa puso. i've been carrying it since my baby was 14 months old that is when I started to noticed some SIGNS, here's the result of my baby's assessment:
my baby's age: 21 months old
gross motor: 20 months
fine motor: 18 months
language:
                expressive: 10 months
                receptive: 24 months (my baby's advanced by 3months)
social adaptive: 18 months
problem solving/cognitive: 3 years old (advanced na baby ko ng 1 year and 3 months for this ;D)
she was asked to do a series of tests she was given wooden puzzles starting with the easy ones then mag move on to more complex if kaya niya (my daughter finished a total of 4 sets on her own), she was also asked to draw a circle and a straight line using a regular pencil and point/identify pictures using flashcards and build blocks lahat ito nagawa ng daugher ko, magaling din siya magexplain and he knows how to get my daughter's attention, he also advised to have my baby's hearing checked, it might be a cause daw as to why hindi clear salita niya, my baby can talk naman but palaging putol ang words its either missing ang last or 1st syllable/letter and some words shortcut lang like water is ter, kah for cat, car, kite, goodnight is gah and the likes, baka daw hindi 100% and hearing niya so she was asked to do BAER to make sure, he also advised us to continue with OT and speech and add toddler class for her to socialize, right now naka summer break si baby her therapies and toddler class will resume on june 14 excited much si mommy kasi may uniform na siya and she's barely 2 :D
sobrang thankful ako sa mga therapist ni baby she was very different then and yung mga signs na notice ko before eh nawala na like inconsistent name response, hand flapping, fleeting eye contact and her fine motor and social skills were very poor then, when she started her therapies she was at a 9 month old level but after 3 months at par na siya well except for the expressive language
so far these are what I learned from this experience:
1. old school toys are still the best. wooden toys like building blocks, puzzles, peg boards and string beads are highly recommended for toddlers it develops there fine motor and problem solving skills at the same time and also how to be patient on completing a task. plan ko pa naman bilhan si baby ng toy laptop on her 2nd bday but after this mas prefer ko na wooden toys and mas like niya din yun, even yung junior tad system hindi niya nagagamit mahal pa naman she prefers to hear my voice than a talking toy
2. spend time with your child as much possible. read to your child, play with them and sing nursery rhymes together. dapat din bawal ang TV but if it is unavoidable just make sure kasama niyo din si baby and kausapin niyo para maging interactive
3. exposure is a must. a simple trip to a regular playhouse at the mall does wonders especially for children suffering from stranger anxiety like in my daughter's case. the first 3 visits was a nightmare but finally on the 4th visit she started to roam around on her own and play with others. it helps the child develop their social and motor skills.wag ikulong ang bata sa bahay if walang time ipasyal sa mall kahit sa labas lang ng house para may makitang ibang tao at bata ok na yun.
4. TRUST YOUR INSTINCTS. if you noticed something different with your child a visit to a dev pedia is highly recommended the earlier the better. Along the way you'll a hear a lot of people saying na bakit si ganito ganyan late din naman nagsalita or normal lang yan baby pa naman yan which is true din naman but what if it's not the case with our kid sayang yung time na sana nabigyan sila ng early intervention.

@ sis riddermark

sis as far as i know si dra hindi talaga nagrerecommend na ipasok sa school ang bata hangga't walang big improvement, ganyan din kasi nangyari dun sa isang mommy na nakakausap ko lagi sa school ni baby, kay dra din sila nagpunta for first assesment, the kid is 5 years old but still not talking hindi naman siya nadiagnose nung first assestment then gusto din sana na parents ienroll sa school for exposure and socialization sana but ayaw niya talaga, i think ganon siguro approach niya but kay dr lazaro based sa mga nakakausap ko kasama palagi sa recommendation niya is toddler class especially for children 3 below for socialization but siguro depende din sa case ng kid, baby ko naman is doing very well sa school halos at par na skills niya pinaka big problem ko is her socialization, before naman kasi she used to play with other kids but eversince nun sinaktan siya ng pamangkin ko everytime may lalapit sa kanya na bata umiiyak na siya or lumalayo maybe it got stuck to her na pag may lumapit na bata sasaktan siya, kaya now dinadala ko siya palagi sa playhouse sa mall sa una umiiyak but after 2 days hindi na but she still wouldn't go to other children, her OT told me not to force her, just expose her lang and let her observe sooner or later siya na din daw kusa lalapit

my baby's OT knows dr lazaro and knowing him she thinks na he will recommend toddler class, lessen OT and continue with speech, but since umiiyak pa nga baby ko pag may ibang bata she'll be put on group therapy once a week parang toddler class din, the group consists of children ages 2-4 mostly verbal kids hayaan muna si baby to get used to that kind of setting kasi hindi siya pwedeng biglain then if nag ok na they will increase the number of group therapy or payagan siya magsalinpusa sa toddler class, and if she pass the evaluation then that's the time she'll be transferred na, hopefully by second sem (that's our goal), matransfer na siya sa regular toddler class
