i have a 2 yr old that doesnt put 2 or more words together. she can say some words theres just not alot we can understand from her. Were on a waiting list to start speech therepy but what else can i do at home. I take her around and point out everything in the house. I read to her. And i have these word flash cards but she just gets frustrated and throws a fit. Would being aroung more toddlers help? Any advice on boosting her langueage skills?Answer Question

My son is 2 1/2 and I still have a hard time understanding him most of the time. I enrolled him into a learning center 2 days a week and it's already seeming to help some, I'm starting to understand some of what he is saying. I'm surprised you're doing speech therapy, did your doctor recommend this? I asked my sons doctor about that and he didn't think it was necessary and wanted to wait and see where he is when he turns 3. If this isn't your first child, that could be it too especially if an older sibling is doing the talking for her. I think it helps a lot for learning for a child to be around more kids their age. I would try a preschool or play group before I wasted time and money on speech therapy. You would get more out of a preschool too than you would speech therapy. It's worth a shot.
