Okay so I am going a bit crazy. I talked to our states Early Intervention a week ago about our daughter. All they did was take her name, age, address, and social, and a very brief summary of what problems we are seeing. They then told us that we should be receiving a call from our Counties Representatives within a week and we can go from there.
So here I sit on Monday... exactly a week later, and I plan to call tomorrow if I don't hear anything. I am not the most patient of people in the world so I am wondering if anyone with experience with this could tell me maybe what to expect next. Will we do a phone interview? Will they just want to straight out come and see her? She is a very confusing case for everyone.
She smiles, makes eye contact, waves, points, talks, has joint communication, no melt downs or tantrums, feeds herself and will eat almost anything, doesn't seem to have any issues with lights, sounds, or touch. She is social and has friends at daycare. Sleeps great. Our issues are as follows:
Hand flaps when excited
Hums while eating or bored
Some Toe Walking
Tilts head back and then shifts her eyes down from time to time to look at stuff. Usually when she is shaking whatever it is she is holding.
Lacking in the Pretend Play area...
I am so afraid of them calling me to question me about her and then telling me they have no use in seeing her, and then 6 months later she gets worse, and we have lost time.
Since I am worried about her will they see her anyway? I am just wanting to know what to expect. I know every state and agency are different, but I'm just curious if someone can shed some light on the process. Thanks!
