My little 2 year old is not super talkative, it has been a subject of worry as a mommy for awhile. It didn't help matters any when his pediatrician suggested I take him for a speech evaluation. I called all of the #s that were recommended to me by the doctor and they were anything but helpful. I even had one office want me to commit to seeing her for treatment for my son before even evaluating him for speech. We haven't even established if there is a problem that he would need therapy for and already they are convinced he will need therapy???!!!! So upsetting...I have felt really frustrated and defeated looking for a speech evaluation. I even called my insurance company for a list and everyone on the list replied with oh we don't do that.
The recommendation that was made by the pediatrician was made in August and thankfully I have seen a lot of improvement in my boy. I really have to listen closely though. He has been saying a lot of things lately and sentences which has made me feel so happy. I think I finally found a place to go to for an evaluation-the best part is they will come out to my home. We will see if they call me back.
