In the two weeks since his last assessment he has been able to say 15 more words. He couldn't say one 3 months ago and we are now at 30 so I am very hopeful he will making huge progress. My son didn't make eye contact before either or want to include people on his interests. Now he tries to get my attention to count with him and gets excited when I do. He will make eye contact, though it us fleeting.... so its all forwards moving. Its good/

This is a lot like what my SIL's son dealt with. Couldn't say many words, he was cuddly but didn't really make eye contact or want to engage anyone. Now he can speak quite well and is more social.

With early intervention it's going to continue moving forward

Paige, that sounds really promising! I'm so glad you're finally getting help.

I've got two things on my mind today:
1. I'm having a ton of pelvic pressure. I'm not sure if it's my ligaments loosening up...I'm having some trouble walking, but I don't think it was that bad (I wasn't so waddle-y) this morning. I walked a big-ish rescue dog today with less than stellar leash manners, and had no trouble doing that, but since I've gotten home my hips/pelvis feel weeeeird.

2. I'm going to be really sad to not be pregnant anymore. I don't like it all that much, honestly...and even when the baby moves, although I think it's cool, it seems more weird than "magical" or whatever people say about it. As much as I don't think there's anything weird about other people being pregnant or giving birth, it seems really, really strange to me.

But it hit me last night that pretty soon, the baby isn't going to be RIGHT THERE, ALL THE TIME. Like, right now, if something was wrong, I'd know right away. And nobody else can take my baby and try to hold it or do stuff with it. And I know he or she isn't too hot or too cold or too hungry or whatever. I don't want all that to go away

I felt the same way with both pregnancies. I didn't really like being [regnant (didnt hate it either) and it certainly wasnt magical but being a parent, and then a parent of 2 was a bit of a mind trip

I'm going to miss her movements, being able to eat whatever/whenever and let my belly hang all out and will miss people treating me like I'm a superhero and instead judging my every move. I'm worried about being successful at breast feeding and about raising her right and about standing up to people trying to interfere.

BUT.

I will be able to have a beer or a glass of wine. I will know what my ankle bones look like again. I will be able to get into a car, roll over in bed or get up off the couch without feeling like a ninety year old arthritis patient. I'll be able to breathe and eat at the same time and still be comfortable. I'll be able to have sex (real sex!) again. I wont have the pain of someone kicking me in the spleen from the inside. And on top of all that, I'll have the reason I put up with all this here with me.

I'm so ready.

My cousin's son didn't start talking at all until he was 2 to 2 1/2. It had us all a little worried because her other boys have all been early talkers and walkers and brilliant little child prodigies and then her youngest just didn't talk at all. Anyways, long story short, he's older now and talks quite a bit!

I don't think that's abnormal of little boys at all, though. Combined with other things it might be concerning, but I think the average 2.5 year old boy isn't very verbal. I wouldn't worry if my 2+ year old boy wasn't talking, provided he was reaching other milestones on time.

That's exactly how it works. The school has trained staff (psychologists, audiologists, social workers, counselors, special education experts, physical therapists, speech pathologists, etc to run evaluations and tests. They request input from any medical doctors or specialists the child sees. Parental input and teacher narratives are considered. Ultimately it is the parents choice what goes into an iep document, but it is absolutely a team effort with all appropriate professionals involved.

The "label" just goes on the special education paperwork so the child can qualify for the extra services they need. In most cases, nothing is considered until second grade because there is such a huge range of normal in young children.
