  • When my oldest son was younger he had a speech problems. We could understand about 75-80% of what he could say. we was all getting frustated when he would try to tell us something and we could not understand him. Heck he would even cry. i called early intervention and got him in a speech class. it helped him a lot. hes 5 now and in kindergarten and talks just as good as the other kids.
    Also it was suggested to us to make a note book of pic of everyday stuff so that if we did not understand him he could point to it for us. Then you repeat the correct pronoucnation(sp) back. We never did this but sometimes i wish we would have.
    also dont make a big deal about his speech problem to him. when you figure out what he wants repeat it back correclty.
    I cant say enough good about early intervetion.

  • Talk to his pediatrician. He should be able to refer you to a place for speech therapy. Is English your second language? I had difficulty reading you post, I'm not bashing, but two languages my cause some delay. Have some friends that had some difficulty because of that.
