Developmental Pediatrics

I took Seth to see the Developmental Pediatrician today.  I love what he told me:  Seth is not developmentally delayed, he just has a communication disorder!  He told me never to refer to Seth as being developmentally delayed because he is smart.  He is right on target physically and cognitively for a 25 month old.  So this means no delays.  However, his speech is way behind, obvious, but the doctor told me this has nothing to do with his cognitive skills, just an obvious side effect of being partially deaf.  We are leaning more toward a Cochlear Implant.  We haven't made a final decision.  Surgery and therapy doesn't scare me.  Just waiting on the opinion of our auditory verbal therapist, Pratibha.  She is awesome.  We are so blessed to have her working with Seth.

Glad you got in to see this doctor, our doc here isn't on the island yet. How am I supposed to deal with an anxious kid until he arrives?????????
