The last time EI was out for a visit (1/23) I asked when they start ST and they said around 18 months. Today I was reviewing a milestone guide that they gave me that said that babies with DS start babbling mama and dada around 4-8 months. Ds2 is already 10.5 months and he is still not babbling consonant sounds. It's all ah, with a few other vowel sounds, raspberries, and tongue click type noises.
With the information from the milestone guide, I'm wondering if I should push for the ST to evaluate him as part of his annual review or if it would even matter if we brought in ST at 13 months instead of 18.
