So I've now met with speech therapist #2 twice, not a huge fan. but whatever... SO MUCH BETTER than the first time we met with her. She didn't have any blanket statements of "he is this... he isn't this..." just more, they had fun together. she recorded the 1/2hr because she learned she didn't have time to write down all the words.
I'm thinking she's new to EI or practicing speech therapy in this way. Maybe that's just my judgement.
Enyhoo... one more with her. And then he'll be evaluated for the over 3 group.
Plus will have a formal eval with the hospital speech therapy group beginning of August.
Absolutely moving forward.
I've had a handful of statements over the past few weeks... my neighbor who works in special ed says "well now that you mention your concerns, yes, he could have some aspergers"... and other friends... "he is so much more coordinated recently, look at him on the pedals!"...
I love friends/family/neighbors... I'll take their words, but I'm not processing them. It's not affecting me. He is learning, where he should be right now, and I'll know more after the more formal eval.
Hate waiting. But having a great summer regardless. That's the point... right?
