Ok, so we just got Christian's narrative report back from him his school. We're very pleased with his scores:
PLS-4 Total Language Score is 110, functioning in the 75th percentile rank. Age equivalent of 2 years, 6 months
Expressive One-Word Vocab Test-Raw Score is 24, Standard is 101, 53rd Percentile Rank, Age equivalent of 2 years, 2 months
Receptive One-Word Vocab Test-Raw Score is 24, Standard is 101, 53rd Percentile Rank, Age equivalent of 2 years, 2 months
Goldman Fristoe Test of Articulation-Raw Score is 41, Standard is 100, 60th Percentile Rank, Age Equivalent of 2 years, 4 months
And I quote from the Speech and Language Diagnosis:
"Christian presents a severe bilateral sensorineural hearing loss. At the present time, his speech and language skills were found to be within normal limits".
I knew that, but I love to see it in writing. I love knowing that in all of these tests, my Deaf kid is STILL testing at and above age level.
His Expressive and Receptive One Word Vocab Test scores worry me. I know our big challenge areas use of objects, pronouns, and sometimes negation. Our BIG challenge is the repetition of "Wh" questions.
So, for all of you amazing Moms out there who have been through this, help me figure out how to help him with these areas. What do you do at home? The SLPs at his school are going to give me homework, but I know from experience that there are some pretty innovative readers of my blog, and I want to tap into my resources here :)
