Hi girls, so I need some advice. You may remember my 2 year old was having a really hard time with the new baby. With some time and moving to a house with much more space for him to play he is starting to get better. In the mean time, I have realized he is not meeting some of the development milestones. Mostly in the area of communication. He does not say as many words as he should and has issues following directions. He has tons of energy and its often hard to get him to focus on a task, but if he is intrested he seems to do great (he can say the labels of the body parts in a book, say the colors on the blocks, and say most letters). I do have an appointment for a speech evaluation and I think speech therapy could really help him catch up. I also have an appointment for an ocupational therapy apointment and developmental pedi apt (they look for autism).
At this point, I'm afraid that I'm pushing this a little too much. The new baby was a major change for Adam and I am thinking maybe I just need to work with the speech therapist and give him a little more time before I start jumping into all these other areas. Any thoughts? I of course want Adam to get all the help he needs, but I do wonder if I'm not overreacting a little. My pedi wants me to do whatever I think is right. She is concerned that Adam did regress over the last few months, but I don't think anyone ever really understood how badly the new baby bothered him in the begining.
