Hello Tweety... My son is almost 3, and is delayed in speech. Have you had him evaulated?? The reason I ask is b/c my son (when he was 2 ) only said between 10-15 words. I was told that the typical 2 year old has a vocabulary of about 30+ words. I have had my son in speech therapy for almost a year now, and he is talking alot more. Still not on the level of a typical 3 year old, but he is doing much better. You might want to talk to your pedatrician, and see about taking him to a specialist for an evaluation...it's just a suggestion.....

one more thing....just remember that kids develop at their own pace :)

i haven't had him checked yet due to the fact that he does say new words on his own every once ina while. he even said bread today then went and got it

my son does the same thing. And I am so excited when he says a new word. Even though my little is making wonderful progress, the speech therapy helps him in so many ways. I have also learned alot of things that I can do at home to help his speech. Just because your son is saying words, it still does not mean he doesn;t need help. And the way I look at it...even if the therapy didn't work. I can say that i have tried everything to help him. Just an idea.

Hey guys, My son is 4, just turned 4 in Nov and he is currently in speach therapy. He talks better now but I feel so bad because he isn't in preschool. I can't afford it (I live in CA and it is so expensive) I stay home with him and I feel he is suffering because he isn't around other kids during the day. They say most kids learn to talk better when they around other kids their age. So do you have any suggestions for what I could do with him to help him talk better?

our 2 year old says 5 words, and the doctors said he has mixed expressive/receptive language dissorder, and basically it is a language dissability whisch causes impairment of both the understanding and the expression of language. he also has a gross motor delay, sebsory integ. disorder, and two doctors have now said they see early signs of aspergers.

Usually if there's a delay it's a second child, they tend to let the older one do the talking for them. It's common that they point or the other child watches over them and fills in the blanks.
Why talk if it's not needed? LOL.
You can encourage him by asking constantly when he points at water or etc. "what is it?" "what do you want?" you more or less force him into speaking up for himself.
Keep encouraging him and discouraging the other from filling in the blanks. He'll get up to speed before too long.

Even my son who is just 2 years and 2 months does the same thing.He listens to us what we are saying but does'nt reply at once only ,but repeat the words being said only when no one is there near to him.WE consulted the doctor ,he said it does take time to talk.So ther is nothing to worry

Hello Tweety, you might want to check out the autism forum. I'm not trying to diagnose your son , but the earlier intervention the better outcome.

Hi, My daughter will be 3 in July, she doesn't say anything at all. She just makes noises. I currently started her in speech therapy. They are trying to teach her signs to communicate with me. It is very frustrating. Not only for us as parents, but also for her. She gets very upset if she wants something and I can't figure out what it is. They say it will take time. But I am very worried.

I know I'm a little late on this forum, however as a speech-language pathologist, I must advise you that should always consult a speech-language pathologist when your child is not talking by 2 years. normal ranges are first words like momma, dadda, juice, cookie are expected at 12-15 months. as the child gets older, he/she should start putting two words together. By 24 months, the child should be putting together 2 and 3 word phrases. Some doctors dismiss the lack of communication to "they'll get it eventually". My recommendation is not to wait. Critical learning of language takes place in these early years. Most states have a program in place called Early Steps. This is a FREE or minimal charge service for any child with development delays of any type. In Louisiana the program is under the Dept of Health and Hospitals. It may be different in your state. Your doctor should be able to get you connected to the right place, but whatever you do, don't wait. Language development is paramount for later academic development, especially reading and writing.

my son is 27 months and has very limited speech but is also very advanced in other areas such as he can do puzzles for a 3 year old very independant when comparing what he does to other 2 year olds he does alot more than them just not in speech the known fact is one side of brain works harder than the other so where they excell in one they will be slower in another and that goes with his speech he understands everything that is said and can do what ever you ask just has no real; interest in speaking i did take him to gp who is setting up speech theoropy she believes he has just felt no real need to have to talk so i am giving him more encouragement i have found through song he tries to say alot more or when playing but not if i sit with a book so i sing words when playing and he has picked up a few but does only say them when he wants so i'm just learning to not be anxious i know he has the capacity to learn and he will but i do wish we could communicate as other mums do with there 2 year olds but also have been told they wish there son or dd could do what he does as he is so independant and can do things a 3 year old can do but just taking his own time to talk def go to gp as speech theorapy will benefit your child and you i cant wait its best done sooner than later

my god shannon, i sincerely hope you will NEVER have to visit one of these posts for a legitimate reason, it is so far from boring to have a child who can't or won't talk, SHAME ON YOU !!!

my son is now 4 yrs old and he has autism, up to the age of 20 mths he had language beyond his age, its coming back thank god,with speech therapy and home tuition, the hardest thing is when you dont know what they want or need cos they cant tell you, heartbreaking stuff. my daughter who is now 6 had difficulty also but that was down to her ears, to get the ears checked should always be the first port of call. good luck with your treasures.

hello, my son is 27 months, and i am having a great deal of difficulty getting him to talk. i know he wants to talk but all he does is speek gibrish all day (non stop) he knows the basics: mama, dada, byebye, nitenite, NO, yea but other than that ,not too much. he will only repeat what he wants and when he wants. but this constant babbeling, is he trying to talk but just doesnt know how? im so worried. he was just evaluated in school and they are now refering us to a therapist. besides sppeking, he is perfectly fine (a little hyper though)...... can anyone offer any advice? or support? thanks so much for taking the time to read this. 

Name: irish Amy | Date: Aug 6th, 2007 10:51 PM
hi devonsdad, you have taken the first big step to helping your son, speech therapists work wonders or at least they did with mine, It could just be that he is slow to speak but if not be assured this is the start of what Devon may need. Best of luck

Im so sorry i spelt Devyns name wrong, and yours!

My son just turned two. He says basic words, but some of his words, like "lightning" (for Lightning McQueen), come out as "eye." I talk and talk to him. I read, and he loves books. He understands everything we say, but he does not want to speak. He will try to if I teach him a new word, but most of the time it doesn't sound like it at all. I don't know if I should wait a few more months, or if he should see someone. I know our doctor will tell us not to worry. But should I be?

my son is 2 and he says some words but not allot. he does so many things with his hands and he points and gets things himself. but does not want to talk so i think that it is because i give him everything and he is not around kids his age.

read my question in the handicaps section my daughteris 19 months and is on the2 1/2 level of everything except verbal communication they cant find a physical problem but they think it might be a neurological problem they use swing therapy to help her talk .the therapist says that swinging and riding a horse can open those path ways and help them talk
