Early Intervention is coming out in the morning to evaluate Austin and Emma for speech. I have been a bit concerned at their lack of true "words". More so Austin than Emma, but I figured it couldn't hurt to have both evaluated. All four are great at "receptive" speech, and my Matty has come a long way with his "expressive speech". I think he may be discharged soon, he is doing so well. Matty will say "hello", "bye", "mommy", "dada", and "lexi". Now my Emma understands a ton. I really feel like she is advanced. She was the first one to point to her designated brothers/sisters=always knew who everyone was. She was the first one to go get something I ask her to........etc. But she doesn't talk much. She says "mama" and "dada" and "nana" and that's about it. As for Austin, he doesn't even say those words. He kind of just mumbles under his breath like "derrrr derrrr derrrrr" and I swear he's saying something, just not sure what it is! :) So EI is coming out at 830am.............I am anxious if both qualify for services..........I'll keep you posted!
