Where do u live? Cus I live in NJ and I told my son's dr when he was around 3yrs old that I wanted him to get evaluated for his speech and she referred me to Children specialized and they tested him there and when they got the results I was able to put him in a special education class so he could be in a smaller class and get speech therapy probably twice a week for 40min. a day. Mayb u can try that? Good luck ☺️

I just got off the phone and she is sending me an application for the screening but I have to wait till after she turns 3 in May for a screening. She also said there is a cradle school I can take her to that doesn't have to fill out an application.

What's first step? Do you think it can help with my lo bc he's 10mo hasn't say anything. And there are some things That I notice he hasn't done when he's suppose to be doing already e.g. Giving you something if you ask or waving bye... Do you think that will help?

That's good. How old is she now? In the meantime u should help her at home. Reading, apps and games.

Almost 3 . She turns 3 in like a month and a half. I read to her have her watch my mouth when I'm saying stuff and nothing I do seems to help her. She can count to ten , understands when I ask her to do stuff, knows all body parts, knows concept words like in on under and behind. It's just pronouncing the letters that she has a problem with.

Franny call the local health department and they can give you the number for first steps to evaluate him. first step is a program that helps with development . I'll send the number on your fb.

Good luck Bianca . How old is your LO? If my DD can't get into the pre school program there is a "cradle" school I can take her too.
