Things have been changing a lot around here. The older girls are in school full-time, just Patrice is home. And things are even changing for her.
We recently had an evaluation recommended by our family doctor for speech delay. We were going to do it this summer, but it was expensive and not covered by insurance, so we decided to wait and see what would happen on it’s own if we left her alone.
But I was too nervouse to do that. So I contacted Early On. They came out a couple weeks later (last week) and determined their is a significant delay. Her speech level is at about 1/2 her age level.
If I’m honest, I have to admit I was shocked. I really thought they would come out and say everything was okay. That we’d laugh at me being overly concerned.
If I’m really honest I was/am sad. I know speech therapy is the most common need in little ones, but you never expect it to be your little one.
But all that aside, Patrice will start therapy next week. Twice a week for an hour each time in our home.
This could be life changing.
