the state MUST provide you with an educational setting for him. (FEDERAL LAW). I'd advice you to take advantage of it, even if not on a full time basis. There are ALOT of advances for children/people with disabilities to facilitate their ability to communicate-- with computer advances they've become SHOCKED at what our children are actually capable.
And 2 years old developmentally is not that low -- relatively. I love the term Developmental DELAY -- b/c it reminds us that our children are making advances just at a slower pace.
2 year olds can do ALOT. I'd look into working on his communication skills -- ALOT. Occupational and Physical therapy etc.
Look at what he CAN do. That is the next stage of acceptance and often the hardest.
MUCH LOVE MOMMA
but take advantage of the education he can get, for all of your families sake.
