I spent a few hours answering the therapists questions and then she had us wait in the lobby for 45 minutes while she scored the evaluation and gave us a short report from today. We will get a more in depth report mailed to us. She said the results were that Cain has a mild speech delay. To be honest with you that thrills me! We have always been told that Cain may be 3-4 months behind developmentally so a mild delay doesn't phase me. He will start really talking when he's ready. The therapist said she was going to put us on the wait list for therapy but Cain may start talking on his own by the time there is a spot open for him to start speech therapy. He is right on the cusp of really talking and you can tell he gets frustrated when he can't communicate what he is trying to say.
Overall I think the appointment went well and I'm very happy to have it behind us.
