Are you going there or are they coming to your house? Most early intervention programs will send someone to your house (one of the main reasons being that children do better when they are comfortable).
i would just say "we are going to see this person (name) and play some games with them" that's mostly what it is. And SLP work with all kinds of kids, so they (should) be used to all of the things you mentioned and more.[/QUOTE]
We are going to their office. It's not going through EI, it's through our health insurance.
Unfortunately, I think my son is delayed enough on receptive language, (or hearing, not sure), that he doesn't understand when I tell him that we are going out to do something. I always explain what we are going to be doing every day, but he doesn't really understand much beyond "get your shoes". Although I am struggling because I really don't know what's developmentally normal here. My 4.5yo DD who is most likely gifted was speaking full paragraphs before 18 months, and able to tell me where she wanted to go complete with directions by age two, ("the park is this way and then you have to turn left at the street that has the horse sign").
