Re: Update on Andy (delayed speech)

Just wanted to give you some ! I didn't read the backstory (I don't know if it's posted elsewhere) but my son also has delayed speech and our pediatrician recommended speech therapy. Right now he's 3 years old and he's just starting in a daycare/preschool - I think that will help immensely. We'll consider starting therapy in the summertime.
Anyway definitely don't think that it's your fault. We parents do the best we can with all the love and well-being for our children being a constant consideration. Sometimes things just happen and develop the way they do because.... well, because they do! Our daughter was raised in the same environment, had the exact same type of pregnancy and birth as my son and she is excelling in school and has never had a developmental problem. So who knows why? Just hang in there - you're doing great things getting him one-on-one therapy.
