Hello. I am new to this group and to chat lines in general, so please forgive any mistakes on my part, as I'm on a learning curve. Our family is experiencing several challenges and I am hoping someone can offer some advice. My 2.5 yr old fraternal boys are quite delayed in speech development (one still mainly communicates by grunting) while the other (exceedingly high-strung and anxious)is a bit further along. We are undergoing at-home speech pathology which is monitored weekly, but I have seen little to no improvement. The high-strung boy is on a waitinglist to be assessed by our local hospital for autism, but that hasn't happened yet. This kid has several red-flags in his behavior that indicate possible high-functioning autism but I don't have an official diagnosis as of yet. He hates social interaction while his non-verbal brother loves it! I am wondering if anyone has had a similar situation and how they dealt with it. For example, do the boys "grow out of it" and begin speaking? Many neighbors and friends all tell me not to fuss, but I am quite worried. Any thought? Thank you.
