Does anyone have good experiences to share with Early Intervention? In our case, we've been referred to seven different specialists, all coming back with different "diagnoses."
I'm not really concerned with milestones, but with having a happy heathy baby. My goal for EI was to have some fun games to play with DS that would help any developmental issues (all of which have been called "very subtle") along. Since he's only 13 months (10 adjusted), I'm not too concerned about delays yet - any concern would come if he's still showing delay at 2, since that's when most preemies even out with their peers.
EI has just been totally disappointing! No one seems to have any "intervention" ideas to share! Once a week, an occupational therapist comes to our house and DS pulls a toy around. She never has any ideas as to what I could do with him at home through the week. Do we just have a bad therapist, or does this coincide with everyone else's EI experience?
