I am new here, but reading your post I see a couple points that concern me. I work as an Early Interventionist, and we see many children from birth to three with speech and language issues.

Welcome to the board, trip92kw.


You definitely have some valid points about the availability and effectiveness of early intervention.

Thanks for the welcome, Dawn :)


It upsets me when I see parents who have gotten the run-around from their child's pediatrician.

I have had more than a few parents tell me that their children passed newborn hearing screening, only to find out later that they had a hearing loss.
