Genetic condition/speech delays
Hello. My name is Nikki and I have an amazing 2 and a half year old boy, who has some developmental delays, one of which is more of a concern than others at this moment, which is speech. He has the delays but is reaching his milestones-just later than some of his peers. He was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder (16p13.3 deletion) at around age 15 mos. I'm writing to see if anyone knows, or has advice on what has worked for their son or daughter and if anyone has any recommendations. I would love to hear what else I can be doing for him to encourage his development-especially speech-wise. We are seeing many specialists and are awaiting others..
