I've got a letter this week from the GP surgery inviting B to attend a 39 month health check at the surgery. I have to chuckle a bit to myself about this. This is the first invite I have had. If I hadn't sort help all these years ago when I first suspected a delay, this might have been the first time it was picked up by a professional. Having older children alerted me to the fact B was not developing normally. I dread to think what a first time mum which a delayed child and no family would do. If you don't come into contact with other children regularly you have no basis for comparison.
For obvious reasons I refused this appointment. B already has so much intervention it wasn't necessary.
