I'd vote for number one too, but neither change needs to be done because the OP has decided to not take the job that interfered with the speech appointment.

That is being around kids on a routine basis.

What would you do?
Given the facts outlined in your previous posts, I concur with your Ds SLP's recommendation. Really the best setting TX of a 3 year old. Hope you can make it work.

Ok let's amend the choices:
1) pre-school & and changing therapist & working part time
2) No pre-school and same therapist and not working
I'd still vote for number one.

Do you really want to revolve D's life and your life around a once weekly TX session a particular SLP.

Skip preschool all together. Shes THREE! She doesnt need friends and she doesnt really need preschool right now. Ask her therapist for other options to help with her speech.

and please listen to your husband or it could drive a wedge between you.

Why do you recommend skipping preschool? Why doesn't girl "need" exposure to peer groups and socialization outside of her home?

Maybe the husband should listen to wife in this case since she's the primary caregiver.

I recommend skipping preschool because as i stated, shes 3. What did kids do before preschool to learn and grow? Again shes 3, why does she need peer groups and socialization? No she shouldnt be a hermit crab but she can learn without formal school.

Mommy groups such as MOPS, Church Groups, Playdates, Library groups, even the dance class OP said.

In fact, in my state, we have free classroom programs for children with speech and language delays starting with 18 month olds (usually these are combined with home teaching and home speech & language therapy). But, not all states provide those services and it appears from your comments, that NY does not provide those services.
Are you sure these programs are for babies with S/L delays?

How does one DX for S/L at 18 months and find that a "classroom" program is an appropiate TX?

Often times S/L Tx is part of an overall early intervention plan for kids at risk of developmental delay or autism.

while homeschool works for some kids, it's poison for others.

I didnt say anything about Homeschool? IMO she should stay home and do the dance class and therapy and skip preschool like her husband wants. If at 4 or 5 she wants to try again, then do so.

I'm not a fan of sacrificing the well being of kids to "keep peace" in a marriage.
