  • You could make noise makers and sing and dance with him. My daughter learned songs just from hearing own kid cd in the car.

  • Talk to him, when you're playing name things like "Let's play Helicopter w/ your arms!!! Swing your arms" stuff like that. Let him make choices & expect a verbal answer like "Do you want to wear the red shirt or the blue shirt?" when he chooses hold it just out of reach & say "Oh you want to wear the (color) shirt today. Can you say (color), wait a couple of seconds & then give him the shirt, he'll start to talk when he feels like he's got something to say. Do this in as many areas of your daily life as possible, meals, baths, teeth brushing, etc.

  • you might try sign language at the same time as talking ( we did this with my oldest when he was 3 ) and talk to the dr about language delays...........they may have a program in your area for therapy if he needs it. a friend of ours had a therapist come to her house 2 times a week for language delays in her twins and the county paid for it!

    on the other hand he may just be more interested in other things........when my son finaly started talking it was in complete sentences!!
