So DS has been given a "working diagnosis of apraxia" through our private SLP. Inititally they did this to see if our insurance would cover therarpy (it didn't). Anyway, they are still leaning toward this diagnosis and so is our EI therapist. So this morning at our session I asked when they give out the official diagnosis (most things I've read have indicated not before age 3 - just wanted to hear confirmation). Our SLP said probably never... because once a diagnosis is given, it stays with the child forever and could affect future education, jobs, etc. Like if DS wanted to go into the military it might hinder his chances, for example. Anyone heard the same thing?
