What's the best therapy for language struggles?

What's the best therapy for language struggles?

My 7-year-old still struggles with his language skills. He knows what he wants to say, but can't find the words or mixes up the words. What's a successful form of therapy to help him with this? I've heard OT, or neuro type therapies tend to help "wake up" that part of the brain. He gets a little private OT, but I'm thinking it's not enough. Any advice would be helpful.

So I am just wondering if anyone has had good, bad or neutral results from this. I am loathe to spend a lot of money on false hope cure stuff, but if it is a genuine treatment option I would do… read more

My son was recently prescribed Celaxa 10mg to help with anxiety issues. He's only 10 years old. He is currently on Focalin XR 10mg for ADHD. I have to admit that I'm not crazy about all these drugs, especially when you read about all the possible side effects. Advice, please!!!

Hi, any suggestions on how to insomnia? Thank you.

My son is 11, non verbal. He has not been able to have a full night sleep since over a week ago. (and neither have I) Allergies are also acting up. I was hoping to get tips or ideas on how to treat. I have looked into melatonin, but I cannot find a lower dose other than 500mg. Any suggestions would be appreciated. thank you.
