For the last month or so I have been going back and forth on if I should call early intervention for Zane. He has had chronic ear infections for about three months. Almost two weeks ago we had tubes put in to help drain the fluid stuck behind his eardrum.
Right after, and I mean like 45min after having the tubes placed he said ma ma ma. He has said ma before but stopped saying it. Yay...it's back. Well he has stopped saying it again.
I have been worried about his speech. Not so much how much he says, but more along the lines that he doesn't understand what we are saying to him.
I don't think he is autistic...but I guess it's a little early to really tell.
Anyway I finally made the call to early intervention today. I should hear back from them in the next few days to schedule an intake and then an evaluation. I was really hoping to avoid having two children in therapy...but I need to go with my gut. If Z just turns out to be a late talker...no harm done in doing therapy...but if he has a language disorder like Gabe...well it will be good that we start sooner then later.
