  • If for some reason you think your child may be behind and you want to get them tested every state has a Early Child Intervention Center where you can get your child tested. Our daughter was a preemie so we had some concerns about vocabulary and why she wasn't sitting and standing at certain points. This is normally free of charge, but if you have insurance they like that so they get some money. They assess your child with you there and let you know what may benefit your child if anything. If your child has a speech delay they will advise you the best course of action. They have programs for low income families as well so don't think you can't afford it. Sounds like you care about your child and want the best for them. If you have doubts this is a good start :) Hope this helps.

  • I'm not so sure about words, but I was told the should be staring to say 2-3 word sentences. My dd wasn't and when I talked to her ped he said he would put in for early intervention... I never got the call or papers like it is required for military but two weeks later she started talking in sentences so there was no longer a concern...
    Hopefully your ped is more capable than mine was so if you do have concerns you know he/she will actually help! GL!!
