L has an official speech delay. I had the evaluators meeting on Friday and got the call from the ongoing coordinator on Monday, so as soon as possible we will start twice weekly sessions of speech therapy. I have to get the occupational therapy consult done and then we will arrange for OT therapy too.
Speech is about 9 months delayed. Gross motor though is 6 months advanced. Fine motor is ... God only knows where. I think he is fine in that category, but the cold cruel psychiatrist keeps talking about how uncoordinated he is. Really do not like that woman. I think I don't have to see her anymore though which is happy news in this house.
Ultimately though I am pretty OK with things. It may just be because I know about sensory issues and I KNOW that it will be resolved with time and therapy. Not to mention L has finally had his little explosion of words and although he doesn't always use them properly he is starting to mime back everything we say.
Note to B and self: time to stop swearing!!
