My name is Amirul Arshad Mohd Mujahid. I am 2 year 9 months old. I am a happy healthy and active toddler. I love to explore new things and try new skills. I can walk at age of 11months, I can run fast at age of 13months, I can climb the stair steadily at age of 15months, I understand most of Mummy & Daddy instructions. BUT, I am a quite boy. I don’t talk much. I prefer to stay quite and observe and listen to what people saying. By age of 2, I seldom talk. I just nodding my head and use sign languages. Mummy and Daddy get worried. People surround me also frigtened Mummy & Daddy saying that I’m having communication problem. They claim maybe I am autisme toddler. Mummy & Daddy afraid BUT, they don’t put stress on me. They keep teaching me and talk to me more now (they both love to sit infront of laptop for the whole day and they also talk less).. huhuh
Feb 2011, I will turn 3 years old BUT, I still talk in my languages which difficult to understand by most of people. Sometimes I get stress. Mummy & Daddy also get stress because do not undertsand what I am trying to express. By age of 3, I should carry on a conversation of two to three sentences and speaks clearly. BUT, I just managed to talk ‘ nak milk, amma, dit, anya, nak air, yak’ not a complete sentence. Then Mummy & Daddy have decided to bring me to have a speech therapy treatment.
Lets see what I had done for my 1st appointment. Before I started my speech therapy, I need to do audiometric test. This test is to check whether my ear have problem or not.
Test started : I need to listen to the sound and stack the block accordingly. I heard a series of tones which is loud and it’s getting softer later. Alhamdulillah I managed to hear every sound that come out. After few minutes, I need to wear ear muff and do the same thing. Again I heard a series of tones through the ear muff. I need to listen carefully to the sound and stack the block accordingly. I also saw the doctor control the tones to check my degree of hearing.
