Not sure what to call this...a whine, anxiety acting up...I dunno. All i know is that I need to get it out and that some of you will understand better than most anyone IRL for me.
Quick background: DS is 27 mos and is severely speech delayed. He has about 30 words and uses some 2 word phrases and short sentences. But that is sparingly, like he went a week with zero words recently and most days I hear just a couple...and i am the only one who usually understands him.
I am beyond thankful for both his spoken and receptive language. Just 6 months ago he had none of this. He hummed.
I think my anxiety is acting up after spending the holiday with NT kids his age and having it driven home just how far behind he is. That and he has his follow up dev eval in a couple weeks...at which i am expecting a dx of ASD (Am both looking forward to a dx so i can get him more help and am scared shitless of it) and he (FINALLY) starts speech therapy this coming week.
My worry: I'm worried he will never talk. I want so badly to know whats going on in his sweet head. Hell, I would be thrilled just to hear him say he wants food or a drink
