22. Oh Jeez, My wife and I have been through this with our now 9 year old son
Edited on Thu Feb-08-07 04:10 PM by new_beawr
So often all I wanted to do was to just chuck all that away and sit down and play with him. The services and evaluations were worthwhile......but depressing.

Well, anyway, he's in third grade and he's doing exceptionally well, despite being "severely delayed" in his speech development, and he used to be REALLY different, now he's just odd..... To me the most important thing was to be patient and make sure I wasn't neglecting his little sister.....We started when he was booted out of Montessori school at 2 1/2 years of age. Fortunately, we lived in a place with very good services (Westchester County, NY)....Just keep giving him your love and it'll be OK..
