Has anyone ever gone through an "early intervention evaluation" for their child because they have been categorized as "developmentally delayed"?
We have one scheduled for my son who will be 16 months next week-this was on the recommendation of his pediatrician.
My son is very affectionate, gives hugs kisses, makes eye contact, walks great, sleeps good, likes to watch sesame street, loves our family dog, recognizes family members etc...
The pediatrician is very concerned however, because he has never pointed at anything (like...ever), he has never waved hi or bye, is not saying any words (not even mama or dada) and has never responded to the sound of his name. He does babble constantly though.
I am...very beside myself-scared and seriously feel like i have done something wrong or should have done something else or..idk...but I am freaking out!
Anywhoo-I know many posters here are knowledgeable on a variety of topics so was looking for any insight one may have on these symptoms, early intervention, what I should think about the fact that he does not point or wave (no more googling for me!).
Thanks for anyone who has any thoughts or first had experience on this topic
