How We Knew Our Son Needed Early Intervention
Our son was born a month early due to me having HELLP (Hemolysis, Elevated Liver enzymes and Low Platelets) syndrome. I found out I had that in the morning/early afternoon, and he was delivered by emergency c-section that night. While we had fears of how that would affect him, he was born healthy and without issue. As time passed, we started filling out those evaluations at the pediatrician’s office. After about a year, our pediatrician said that our son’s communication scores were low, and if that continued, we should get some help. Our son was great at letting us know what he needed by using gestures but was not talking at all and showed little to no interest in starting.
