Hi, I hope you all don't mind if I join you. I have lurked from time to time on this board. More recently I have been reading posts almost everyday. So I thought I should introduce myself.<br><br>
My name is Karen and I have twin boys who will be three next week, Logan and Jordan and Rylan who is 2 months old. The twins will be starting a developmental preschool on Monday. Logan has a slight speech delay. Jordan is delayed in more areas. He has a severe speech and communication delay. At this time he does not use any words to communicate. He has said a couple words here and there so we know he *can* say some. He has just in the past month picked up some signs that he is using so that is great. He has some sensory issues too. He is mostly sensory seeking. Sometimes he can sit for long periods of times and do a task and other times he has to get up and jump around etc. Through testing his fine motor skills and cognitive is delayed (I personally don't think he is as delayed in these areas as the tests show). And outside of that he is a wonderful, adorable, funny, happy child <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I would not be surprised if he would be dx as being on the spectrum. At this time we have chosen not to get him dx. He is receiving the same services right now whether he has a dx or not so for us we are just choosing to wait. Although, since he is turning 3 we have to apply for something through the state to keep his one on one OT and speech. If he doesn't qualify (not delayed enough) then I will have to decide whether we need to look into a dx (if he had a dx he would automatically qualify for private OT and ST).<br><br>
Well that is us in a nutshell <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I have tons of questions so excuse me if I bombard the board with questions!<br><br>
Thanks!
