Does anyone know where we could get help for a blind and speech delayed 5 year old? He was a 24 week old preemie at birth. He has very good receptive language but almost no expressive language, although he is verbal at times but inconsistant and not meaningful, yet he is not autistic. He is physically healthyand has very good mobility.Currently we are more concerned for his speech than his vision problem. Advice will be greatly appreciated.

I would recommend taking your child to a speech therapist for a thorough evaluation. According to the findings, the speech therapist will design an individual therapy program for your child and will start working with him/her. Twice a week at least is probably recommended. Good luck !
