Didn't know where to post this, im not really having a rant, im just upset.
My little girl is 3 and a half, and she's not talking yet. She was put on the waiting list to see a speech therapist through the HSE when she was just over 2years old, we were waiting ages for her to be seen and then when she was the speeh therapist was just really unhelpful saying theres not much she can do when shes that young with her and hopefully she'll start talking soon etc.
Anyway my little girl was only seen by her a few times and that was once a month which I thought was useless.
Anyway we brought her to a private speech therapist last week and she did an assessment on her. I think i kept making excuses for my little girl not talking yet. Shes an only child and theres no small kids around where we live, so was thinking maybe that a disadvantage for her. Anyway the sppech therapist said that the way shes interacting - playing etc shes only at the stage of a one year old. Im in bits, feel like its my fault and I should have done something and not let it get this far.
On top of all that Im in my last year in college and just found out that Im after failing a subject that Ive been carrying since last year. Ive only one chance left to repeat it and if I don't Ive failed the year. At the minute Im wondering if I should just drop out and concentrate completely on her...
My heads all over the place..
