I hope that I made the right move, but they said I could always get started again in the future if we feel that it would be a good fit for my lo.
For him at 17 months, I want him to just explore and be a baby, not rewarded with food for sitting and playing with a toy appropriately. He really likes to be on the move so I don't want to restrict his behavior because something might be wrong. I hope that I am not missing something here. I would feel so bad if he does end up getting a diagnosis of something that would have been helped by early aba therapy, I just don't see it being a good fit for him right now.
He does make great eye contact, babbles and has started saying single words, points at everything. He doesn't always respond to his name and went through a phase where he was very shy and lost it in certain situations, but that is seeming to go away. I hate to think that I am diagnosing him of something that is not there.
