Because of the stroke and the concern about damage, neurology had referred Elanor to Early Intervention when she was sent home on 11/30.
She was evaluated mid December, and was qualified mid January. The plan was supposed to be written today, but was put off until Friday due to snow/ice, and the nurse will come 2/10 for the first time and then regularly starting at the end of February (we both have trips scheduled which prevents a visit between 2/10 and 2/26).
The process is super slow.
Truth be told, I’m not that worried right now. Elanor seems like she’s hitting all the milestones she’s supposed to be hitting so while I’m happy to have EI involved as E gets older (especially in the 1-3 year range, but that’s not for nine months yet) I’m kind of blase about how long it takes right now.
But I can imagine that it would be painfully slow if you were actually worried about your 2 or 3 year old.
