My son has tubes

by followthatdog

I was worried about this decision as well, but the difference since we had the tubes put in has been night and day. He has not had an ear infection since. The surgery took under 15 minutes and he was fully recovered by the time the anasthesia was out of his body (about 12 hours).
I don't know how old your daughter is, but for us, it helped with other developmental milestones as well. Once he was ear infection free, his sense of balance improved, his hearing improved so his ability to speak clearly and understand words improved. He was 11 months when the tubes were inserted, and one has now fallen out (this is completely normal)

They are qualified to recommend a kid for

by screening_

It's pretty basic stuff. All it is is considering if a child is hitting milestones. If the average age of walking is 12 months, and you have a 15 month old who is not even close, then you can recommend to the parents that they talk to their ped or contact Early Intervention. Perhaps you expect that at 2 year old can talk in short sentences, and you have a 2 year old who isn't doing that. That's not difficult to notice. You don't need an advanced degree. You notice, and you mention it to the parents.
We're not talking advanced diagnosis here. We're talking about noticing if a child doesn't hit developmental milestones.
