My daughter is almost 21 months old. She says about 25 words, but not all the time. She talks only when she wants to. She will get in a mood, and say anything you ask, but mostly she just makes noise... She understands just about everything I say. She follows directions. She loves pretend play. I am concerned that she is not talking enough... I called her doctor, and he wants to see her tomorrow, and may refer her to a speech therapist... I don't know anything about this. What does the evaluation involve? What should I expect?Answer Question

This is a link to a reply I posted to a question in our "Children with Speech Disorders/Delays" group. It's things that ECI helped me to put into his routine. Sometimes, you just need a place to start.
PM me if you have any other questions. This subject is real close to my heart. He was 27 months old before he said "Mommy". :) I wasn't sure he'd ever say it. Now, I hear it all the time & it's music to my ears.
