Pia, I hope the eval goes well for your little guy! We went through the same thing with our son when he was 3 and although they never pinpointed a cause at that age (later we found out he had learning disabilities) it gave us enough information to get the help we needed. We were able to work with a speech therapist that gave us many activities to use every day - not just once a week in therapy and it helped ALOT. With her help, I also paired a lot of the activities with music and singing (it was easier for him to sing than speak at that point!) Hopefully it will just begin to click for him - it did for my son. he still deals with the LD but was able to catch up with language after a couple of years.

I'm following you - hope you'll stop by and follow me too!

Welcome Pia!
My 5 year old son also has some speech delays, but nothing serious. As a matter of fact, hes been going through speech therapy in head start for the last 2 years, is going to be having speech therapy in kindergarden, and just a couple weeks ago at his 5 year check up, his pedi referred us to have him seen by an ear nose and throat dr cuz he FINALLY noticed that the lil piece of skin under his tongue wasnt fully developed properly and needs clipped. (yeah, ive been telling him THAT for almost 2 years lol)

Thanks Cj! Ive spoke to a few other parents of kids with ADD/ADHD and it seems the general concensus is age 4 most kids are diagnosed, but I cant help but think if thats just because theres an "extra set of eyes" on the kids, as the kids are entering school and the teachers/nurses at the schools pretty much know what signs to look for where as most parents do not. Ive felt for about a year now that she may have add/adhd, but everytime ive brought it up to the pedi, they kinda shrugged it off sayin to wait till shes 4 because specialists say they cant really tell any younger than that. However, my son has a freind with adhd and he was diagnosed around 3 ish i believe. The main reason I had an idea of what to look for though is because my half brother has it, so ive looked into this when i was pregnant with my kids to see if my kids could get it just based on genetics. I do plan to have her seen by someone, now its just a matter of getting a 'sick child" visit to her pedi so i can tell him i definitely want a referral to get her checked out. Even if its not add/adhd, atleast a specialist might be able to give me some direction as to what exactly IS going on.

Hi all! I am new to the group too, and thought I would introduce mysef as well. I am a mom to a wonderful 3 1/2 yr old boy with a severe speech/language disorder of unknown origin. He is not autistic (I believe) but we are still in search of finding out what is really going on. We are going for a big eval in a month and I am thrilled and freaked at the same time. I blog all the time (cheaper than therapy, ehe?) and pretty much focus on our journey, with occassional detours.

Welcome Dawn,

Your blog is really great. My son was accurately diagnosed with ADHD at 4. I would see if there is a developmental or behavorial peditrician in your area and try to get a read on what is going on with your daugher. There have been many studies that indicate pre-schoolers benefit from early intervention. And if it its not adhd - the techniques and strategies benefit all children... My son is doing great and he is in Kindergarten!

My blog is

Hey everyone! I am new to the group so I thought I would introduce myself. My name is Dawn Lidwell, and I am a WAHM of two beautiful children. My 5 year old son has type 1 diabetes, was diagnosed at the age of 3 1/2. My 3 /12 year old daughter, we believe has ADD or ADHD, however our pediatricians keep telling me that there is nothing they can do or even have her seen by anyone until she is 5 years old, so, were not sure if thats whats going on for sure (without a dr dx'd guess its hard to tell lol) or what lol. I do have a Blogspot blog where I rant about my son's condition from time to time, but its not really one i keep up with on a daily basis lol. Its more like my online journal of sorts, and if others see it, fine, if not, im not too concerned. I also have a blog about my home business too. Anyway, I just wanted to introduce myself. Feel free to add me. Id LOVE to speak with other mothers of type 1 diabetic children!
