Re: Hypothetically if your daycare provider.....

I wouldn't be offended but I have 2 children with special needs so that brings a different perspective.

I wonder if the child is just behind because they have no siblings and no children related to them or close by, besides the other children at the DCP, to interact with.

Many only children and oldest out of cousins etc. are a little "delayed" when it comes to social interaction an milestones. They don't have anyone to learn from and are often not challenged to use what language they have because they are mostly in contact with adults.

If I was the Mom I would ask for a hearing test though. I would be happy that the doctor has no concerns but continue to watch my child and monitor their development and if needed bring up the concerns again in a couple months.
