    thanks so all the mums who put this info up. I've also been looking at getting 21mth old boy evaluated as he has spoken barely 5 words. Also our insurance will cover it till the end of this yr so I thought I should get this looked at now. I was actually going to wait till after his 2nd birthday but we will have to foot the bill then ... hate to be so pragmatic but in hk insurance is so impt!

    An update for those interested: We went to Carol Adcock and have to say that we were disappointed. She couldn't finish the assessment in one hour (cost HKD 1000) and she ran over by 20 minutes. And then she asks us to book another 45 min session (at additional cost of HKD 850) to complete the assessment. She was rambling and didn't address the issue we went in to get assessed. Found her to be unfocused. Prior to the appointment I found her unresponsive. She doesn't reply to her emails and because she didn't respond to my query by email I sent her an sms which took her 2 days to respond to. Given her ramblings, I had to reiterate the reason for our consultation and had to remind her the primary reason why we were there and then had to press her to give a diagnosis and even then she didn't say anything we didn't know. We are disappointed as we had hoped to come away with a definitive diagnosis and practical solutions or strategies to correct my son's pronunciation errors.

    BTW what are her qualifications? Their website doesn't mention anything.

    We noticed our 4 year old son was having issues with speech/sound errors too. I found an American woman here who will come to your home, and Gus really loves her. We've seen noticeable improvement in the last few months since he started working with her. Her name is Nicole, and she has a Masters in Speech and is a certified teacher of speech disorders. Her email is [email protected], but if you want more info or her phone #, PM me. I don't want to post it publicly since it's a cell. Good luck to you and your son!
