I had an appointment this morning with Early intervention, a program through school district that helps kids in all different areas before they attend school. I have been concerned about Shane's speech so I got him evaluated today to see if he qualifies. They also evaluate where he is in motor,cognitive ,social /emotional , self help development. In motor/ self help development he is actually above his age ranking in at 21 m. In social/emotional and cognitive he is ranking around a 18 month old so a tiny bit behind since Shane is 19 m but not too bad. They were very pleased at how well off he was considering all he had been through. Speech however was a different story. In receptive language he ranks about a 13m old and in expressive language he ranks around a 7 m old. This was expected. I knew it was coming. Now a speech therapist will come to my house and give me the tools needed to help Shane grow in that area. Just thought you all would like to know.
