  • Depending on where you live, see about getting him into a preschool program that offers speech therapy, and possibly have him screened for Autism Spectrum Disorder, as well as having his hearing checked and make sure there are no physical problems preventing him from talking.

  • you may need to look into speech therapy! I know a lot of kids that couldn't talk and they went through speech therapy and now they talk better than most kids their age!

  • Have you spoken with your pediatrician about getting involved with Early Intervention? Has he been tested for Autism?

  • have you had his hearing checked recently? Sometimes if they have had several ear infections their hearing might be affected and that could cause a speech delay

  • I have a son who does speech therapy through the state. What you need to do is contact the school district and tell them that you want your child screened. They then will send you paperwork and set up an appointment for the screening. They will screen for everything. Every school has a preschool with this program. It is through the state so there is no cost. If you have any questions feel free to email me! Good luck!
