How much of a role do you think they play in developmental delays?

I really don't know. My husband was 'perceptionally' (sp?) impaired until Grade 5. I received extra help for the first two years in high school and struggled in school. Once Sophomore year hit, it all clicked and I did really well. My 2 brother's have had speech issues, and Dan also had speech as a child.

Has your three year old had an evaluation done?

YEs...at 2.5 he was evualted by our school district(which is awesome)...he sees a speech therapist once a week and will be starting at a special ed preschool(that deals with all sort of delays, not just speech) next month. The preschool has a preschool teacher, two paras, and a speech therapist, occupational therapist, and physcial therapist that trade off on days coming in... I can't explain how much my school district has helped my son. His issue has always been that he has a good amount of single words that me and dh understand, but he would never spontanously make even a small sentence. Now he can do 2 word combos and some 3 word combos... and his pronouncation of words has improved too, others can understand him(well sometimes)

Oh also, he was tested in all developmental areas, his only concern is speech though

Thanks about the siggy. Your kiddos are adorable too
