Research :p

At Izzy's therapy session last night, we were talking about the continuing anxiety she has when she gets around other people, including people she previously had no problems with.  We have random good days where she's over it quickly and talks and interacts but there are still plenty of days where we might not hear a word.  Her therapist arranged to come to our next speech therapy session on Thursday, which is fantastic.  I'm really hoping the therapist and SLP and work together to come up with strategies to help Iz feel more comfortable during speech (because it won't help if she's not participating!) and playgroup and other situations.  Her therapist has been connecting with other therapists and SLPs that she knows as well to find people who have helped kids through anxiety that affected their speech to get ideas of things to look for and try with Iz.  I'm all for collaboration!  What works for one may not work for another but at least it is a starting point :)
