Second language learning and a speech delay

 

I wouldn't worry about it. I waited a little longer than I had initially wanted to for my kids to work on learning a rosetta stone language software due to their expressive speech delays but it was theirs, their siblings had nothing to do with it. Also, since the program we use has actual speaking, it would be too frustrating for my child to do it when speech wasn't clear enough. My 7 and 4 year old are still in speech therapy. My 9 year old was for three years. He's doing Rosetta Stone French and I'm glad I waited for him since he gets frustrated easily and he's loving learning French, which he wouldn't have if we had started him too early and when speech was still an issue for him. He needed to be able to really hear the sounds too. There are still some sounds that sound the exact same to him in English that aren't. But it's minimal enough that Rosetta Stone was worth a shot. My7 year old is a perfectionist and still has a speech delay but I told her she could do french as well, but she didn't want to try it yet.

 

 

 

Cheap Rosetta Stone French, rosetta stone portuguese

                                                             Kids hearing another language isn't going to be a huge deal.


(And can actually be helpful in many cases). But if they're expected to be able tospeak the language at all, then the frustrations can be huge, which is why I waited until speaking English didn't frustrate my kids most of the time.I have three boy's that have been in ST. Two of them were still receiving services from ps until I pulled them out in Feb. I have now started teaching my 10yo Spanish, and it's going well. English is well established for him, and he has been out of therapy for 3 yrs. The other two still have a lot of problems, and I will not start Spanish with them, until the rosetta stone german is spoken clearly by them.

All four of her children were placed in the ELP, and started ST when kindy started due to speech delays. Because English is the language that they will need to succeed (per the school) the children speak both languages. English at school/Spanish at home. The problem is the children are struggling in school, and at home. I mean BAD struggling, andhave beenretained a grade(s), and attending before school help 2x per wk. It's so sad to see them so frustrated, and not able to communicate clearly in any language. I can't understand them in either English or Spanish, and I have dealt w/three of my own having speech delays. I thought it was only me that could not understand them, but the parents(especially the mom) is at her breaking point. She has such a hard time, communicating with them, especially when it comes to homework. She can understand the homework, but her son's don 't understand her, and she has a VERY difficult time understanding them. I did not realize the severity of the problem until a few months ago. The oldest is 11, and still can't communicate clearly in either rosetta stone spanish. Not sure what his delay is, but I noticed that he has a phonological delay along w/ a slur.
