for baby girl... She does not have any words anymore... and I don't believe she understands much more than her own name and "no". The lady explained they have 45 days to get everything done. I told her that Early Intervention had completly missed V but was able to help my big boy. She asked some questions about all 3 kids and explained that things have changed. Even if the kiddo does not have a 30% delay in one area or 25% in two, they might still provide service based on the kid's history and family history. I asked her if she thought I should wait a few more months, to kinda be sure. Her opinion is that the loss of words is bad enough on its own and the team should come and evaluate. So I guess let's get ready for more evaluation! Honestly, I don't want to worry too much, 'cause baby girl is quite social and has good eye contact. I think it is strictly a language/speech issue. But then... loss of words and only "ah" sounds is not too good. She will once in a while make a "d" or "t" sound. That is really it. She will engage with people and make herself understood when she needs some. I suppose that is a good sign. Anyone else with experience with real young kids? Do you guys see any red flags for any bigger diagnosis? Oh, one more thing. Between 6and 9 months she had 6 words pronounced very clearly. Now, after A LOT of solicitation she will attempt to say "Mama" but it sounds like a deaf person is talking. And her Hearing has been checked early spring (following ear tubes at 5months) and everything was fine.
