i fear my daughter has fallen behind on language and speech development. she can barely string 2 words together, and parrots at that. when i ask a simple question, like "where are puppy's eyes" she'll change the subject by counting the eyes instead "one, two" she'll say and then try to kiss the puppy on the page or smile at me and walk away, or just simply try and avert MY attention by showing me her favorite toy.
i've checked every list that compares child speech development and she has fallen drastically behind. i'm at my wits end. and i've gotten to the point where i'm starting to just give up when i try to teach her something. she hasn't learned anything new in months. i think it's time to switch doctors. he keeps saying its normal, but at THIS rate? this isn't normal to me. something is wrong. she's going on 3 and can't barely string 2 words together, she just parrots everything i've ever said to her.
