Series 2, Episode 1 - Speech And Language
Rosie starts to say the word mama, raising hopes that her communication might finally take off.
Feeling totally outshone by Rosie's amazing school teacher, Emily concentrates on trying to develop Rosie's sign language. Meanwhile, Simon starts to worry that the other parents of children with special needs at the school look down on him.
In the early timeline, set in 2007, the results of Rosie's first evaluation are in and Si and Em are told that she has an IQ of 47, putting her in the bottom 0.02% of the population. In the doctor's view, she is severely learning disabled, and it is unlikely this will change as she gets older.
Following the news, Si and Em find it hard to talk to each other, with their relationship drifting apart as Si retreats into his backyard to smoke and drink alone and Em takes solace in the company of her eldest child Ben.
