DS is 25 months and is just on the cusp of normal development for his age (going by checklists of things they should be able to do by age 2). I don't know if he's just on the low end of the bell curve or if he's actually got a developmental/speech delay that should be looked in to.
Do I talk to our GP? The ECHC? I haven't been there since he was a newborn, is a toddler checkup/screening the sort of thing they do there?
I've asked his daycare and they're not concerned about him but he is behind his peers. It's mostly his speech, but he doesn't show many other signs of intelligence in the way he plays either.
There's a few family members with ASD so that's always been something to watch out for, but he doesn't obviously meet that criteria either.
Socially/emotionally he's fine, happy, lots of secure relationships.
I don't know if I'm being appropriately cautious or just being impatient that his development isn't going as fast as I'd like, leaving me stuck in the crappy baby/toddler stage for longer than I can handle :-/
Ugh what should I do, look into getting him assessed or just be patient?
I'm happy to elaborate on anything if that helps.
