  • i think he eventually will if you let the school work with your son alot. i have 2 sons that had speech problems but only one that had it majorly. the teacher's worked with them alot and they did a great job over the years, my sons are now 8 and 11 but when they were in preschool, it was horrible, only my family members knew what the worst of the two was talking about but if he talked to other strangers, they didnt know.

    the teachers do know what to do by listening and watching your child. they did a great job with mine.

  • Have the speech therapist teach you exercises to do with your child; or find a book at the library.

  • What did the people who evaluated his speech say? Do they know what is causing the delay? What do they expect? Start there....then make sure he gets the therapy he needs, and follow through with practice and exercises as recommended.

  • The speech therapist said, yes he have delay in speech. His level of thinking of 2 years old. I think I blame myself most of the time because of this problems. I dont speak as much as I supposed too when he is a baby. The speech therapist help me by teaching me how to increase my son vocab. thats sort of things. He can speak now. But most of the times he need to repeat what he's saying cos not so clear. I feel sad whenever I hear the kids at playground make fun of the way he talk. I try to ignore cos I know I will hear thats cruel remarks until he can speak normally.
