As most people know, my DS is 2.5 and still not talking . No words. He seems to have turned a corner the last month re - babbling , he now does that all day long , very clear speech sounds , and sometimes even copies sounds I make which is a huge achievement for him. Him and he's sister seem on par with each other re - verbal development and she's just over 13 months younger .
We are liaising with a pead and ST about this and he's had an EEG and chromosomal blood rest come back as normal .
I'm just so confused about all of this , going to the speech therapist sessions make me feel better that I'm doing " something " seeing as everyone drills on about early intervention etc but it's almost like DS is too young still to actually garner much from them yet . Yet I worry that leaving it till three is too late .
He's attention span at these appointments is about ten minutes max , once he's over some bubble play he just spends the entire time trying to get out of the room and pulling at my arm to leave.
I know lots of parents on here have children in Speech therapy , what were your children like at the sessions before 3?
I don't know what path I should take . Keep going regularly , wait awhile , wait till 3, im very confused ??!?
I have seen some hubbers on here say they don't believe in ST before 3 or that they are waiting before they begin to explore their children's issues . Would like to hear from people that have that way of thinking also .
I'm certainly not saying I'm waiting , we have already done lots of testing and will continue to proceed with our plan of a formal assessment by a developmental pead and so on , but I can certainly see some gain in holding off on some things when your child just seems too young .
Sorry for the ramble, I'm very confused and second guessing myself everyday , afraid one wrong decision or move will be detrimental to my sons future . I hate this limbo :-(
Thank you xxoo
