Early Intervention

Due to my concerns regarding my sons speech and behaviors I made the decision to get Early Intervention involved. I was so nervous to have someone coming in my home that I went crazy this morning trying to make things perfect. I felt like she would judge me if my house didn't sparkle. Jaidyn was not having it, every time I cleaned up one room he would mess something up in another. He went from room to room pulling the dirt out of all the flower pots, pulled all his books off the bookshelf, dumped apple sauce all over him, the chair and table. It did not stop there. He is such a handful sometimes, actually all the time. I thought I would have help from his father but nope. He left me to deal with it all! It would of been nice for him to stay, maybe voice his concerns and hear what the women had to say. Typical him depending on me to deal with it on my own. I did it though and things turned out alright.  

The women they sent out was very pleasant. She listened to my concerns making note of them and didn't judge me or make me feel like a bad parent. I felt comfortable talking to her. She told me how her daughter had severe separation anxiety so she knew how I was feeling. Its nice sometimes to hear that someone else is going or has went through the same thing as you. Although I didn't want to hear that it could take months if not years to go away. Jaidyn also made it very easy for her to understand. I really didn't have to tell her any of my concerns because my son showed her how over whelming he can be. At one point he took the papers out of my hands and threw them on the floor. (another words pay attention to me now!!!) I tried to lay him down for his nap so I could do the paperwork but he was not having that. He screamed every time I left the room and always came running back into the living room. The paperwork that should of taken just a few minutes ended up taking about a half hour. She also saw that he wasn't talking like he should be, just pointing and whining.On the positive side she feels that Jaidyn is doing everything else well above his age. This wasn't much of a surprise to me but still nice to hear. Our next step is setting up the assessment to see if he is eligible for services. I should know whats going on with in the next few weeks.
