I understand you completely! I have a 3 year old boy, active, but was always home (no daycare or anything) and I noticed when he was almost 2 years old, he was still into the "mama, papa" things like that and his pediatrician and people always told me not to worry, children are different and some take more time than others...which is true, but I always felt like I needed to help him. By coming to this website I got the reassurance that I needed a lot of the moms in here recommended me to just in case check him out and call Early Steps and they transfered me to my local Children's Advocacy Center, which they help him w/speech and occupational therapy for free till he turned 3 years old and then they did all the paperwork to transfer him to Child Find, which they were the ones to enroll him in Pre-K for special needs eventhough he is 3 still. And believe me, he has improved sooooooo much! From the beggining Early Steps did so many test, even a hearing test and it does take time to receive help (that's why I suggest you calling asap) but it was worth it...even u have insurance they do offer the help for free...if I'm not mistaking they are all over Florida. Good luck, please let me know if you have questions.!
btw, the website for Early Steps is...
