My daughter is 15 months old. We are on our third time of losing speech. She was going so well at 5-8 months. She knew mom, daddy, bottle and actually used them in the right context. She knew so many other words at the time too, even if she didn't use them in the right way. In December, we lost all language and started back at sounds. Again in Feburary, granted this was after her surgery, she lost it again. Now here we are in April and again we lost all her language. Everytime she starts back at the beginning.
We already started the process of Infants and Toddlers a month ago because I had other concerns with her behavior; repetivite behaviors, hitting herself and me constantly, scared of all different things like vacuums, drills, people knocking on the door, random toys, ect..
Now I know she is very young and she has been through quite a bit in her short life. At her 15 month appointment they did recommend speech intervention. Could it just be the "hard life" or is it autism spectrum? And what exactly does speech intervention include for a 15 month old?
