Because Sam qualified for more individual speech therapy through the hospital. The therapist will be able to do some stretching exercises and other stuff to help him develop his tongue, cheek and jaw muscles. YAY!! That along with other stuff too.
It's really sad when you're pleased that your child is low enough to get services. but it's the crap part of having a special needs child who sits on the border.
I could have him classified further and he'd get even more help, but I don't think that's necessary. A wise mommy told me once that just because the someone else wants a diagnosis, doesn't make it true. I've never felt Sam fit into a specific category of delay, nor have I thought he'd be a year of service and be fine type of kid.
