Re: Well I did it... I called Early Intervention

On another message board I'm on, someone posted a link to questionaires about children's development. link So I went and took it, and the questions are worrying me now a little. Here's the questions for DD's age and my responses. If I had any doubt that she needed to be evaluated before, I don't anymore.

At the end of the questionaire there was the option to have the results emailed, so I'll update again once I have received those.
