These darn states just want money so they are diagnosing kids with crap they don't have. I filled out a form for my doctor who sent it to the county. They called me saying my 2 year old needs Early Intervention. There is nothing wrong with him except normal two year old behaviors. I turned them down today after talking to my ex and my kids' babysitter. Stop pushing for crap people! You won't get your money from my kid.

you're trolling, because that is NOT how early intervention works in any of the states.

no one can just call you and say, "your child needs early intervention"

SMH at your stupidity and ignorance of how EI works.

In New Hampshire some of the doctors pretty much force you to do early intervention... I switched doctors just to stop the one from harassing me. I said we weren't interested. My son is fine, he just learns at his own rate...

 That's not how I saw the system...I had to bug the state for a nutritionist for my YDD...and my SIL had a hell of a time getting help for her DD...her DD has hydrocephalus and is in therapy 2-3x a week...

Hello? Can you read? I filled out paperwork for my doctor who sent it to the Early Intervention people.

Umm, in a lot of states early intervention is free. I hope your not wrong, because if there is something up with him it's better to find out sooner rather than later. You could at least have him tested and make sure.

I hope he doesn't. I like the doc.

 So your doctor thinks your child needs help?

Oh and if a Dr. thinks a child isn't developing on a 'normal' schedule a Dr. may submit papers as a referral to early intervention. Then EI tests them to see if they are even eligible.
