My son is now 26 months old and was diagnosed with CHT at 10 days old. Treatment started at 15 days old. My son is experiencing a speech delay. He totally understands what I am saying and is very cooperative when we tell him to do something. His vocabulary is about 12 words. He is not putting sentences together. He is in the Early Intervention Program. Anyone else having these problems. I am just wondering if they are CHT related.
