I just took Abby to the doctor for a follow-up on her hearing. When she went in November (as per the speech therapist's recommendation), the tympanogram showed fluid in her ears. This could be the reason why her speech has been slow and sounds have been coming out "slushy". She took allergy meds for about a week, went off for a bit, then took cold meds just before Christmas. Anyhow, today's tympanogram showed completely normal hearing. There is no fluid anymore! So, her issue is likely a speech/articulation issue and not totally a medical one. Hopefully having the information stating there is no medical reason for her delay will allow us to speed her through the speech placement process.
