In the meantime, while you are waiting for answers/treatment, just make sure you keep Avery close to you when you talk to him (inches from your face), speak clearly, and use short phrases. With more "purposeful" communication you can maximize his exposure to speech and language. You're probably doing it already anyway

Good luck, it sounds like you are doing everything right, I hope you get some answers soon!
Thank you for your advice
