We were seen by a neurologist Tuesday due to my child's rapid head growth. She asked about his communication. When he was 6 months to 9 months he could say hey, hey there, mama, dada, nana, ki-kitty, dog, bye, and baby. Now, he's 13 months old and only says hey, mama, and dada. He is now walking. He doesn't point or wave bye bye. He also doesn't mimic any facial expressions. He doesn't respond when we call his name. If we raise our voices at all, he will scream and start crying so hard. He does not really play with his toys. He turns them over to play with the tires. He does still show.emotion. He still babbles and mumbles, but no new words or any of the previous words. He is now walking. He does look us in the eye. He does not bring toys over to show me. I just feel as if there is something wrong.
Hunter was evaluated by Early Intervention Tuesday. As of now, we are just going to have speech therapy. Everything else looks okay for now. Thanks for all the support. Just this week, he started throwing the ball with us! I can't wait to start speech therapy. She said then we would be wishing he would hush lol The neurologist finally called back and he doesn't have hydrocephalus. We are now waiting on an appointment for his MRI.
