non verbal 5yrs who gags!

Postby gbarry » Sat May 07, 2011 4:44 am

HI we have been running our son rise program part time for the past 12 months, my son has moved forward in all the developmental area's apart from his language. We have been really focusing on his first word for the last couple of months and my son attempts to speak when motivated, he opens his mouth attempts to make a sound, moves his lips into positions and looks directly at you, but no word or letter sound comes out other than "uh". He then gags! and sometimes is sick, it presents as though the effort of trying to speak has triggered something in his throat that makes him sick! It is such a shame because then the effort of trying to speak turns into a not very nice experience for him. We have carried on requesting words dispite this but wonder if we should move away from requesting for a bit as I dont want it to turn into a negativity for him!
Any idea's would be helpful :D
