ok so my 3 yr old son has been screaming for no reason since he was 2, i was told that he would grow out of it and he did for a while but he has just started up again. its like an ear piercing looooooong scream that drives me insane and it comes out of nowhere for no reason. also it seems like his speech development is delayed- i mean he does talk sometimes and he can count to 20 in english and 10 in spanish and he knows how to say thank you in 4 languages (thank you nick jr.... lol) also he knows words for things that he wants like juice, crackers, cheese, so on and so forth. but he wont make complete sentences and he would rather scream and cry and pull on me to get what he wants instead of saying can i have this or that. also if i ask him questions he wont answer me like if i ask him how old he is he stares at me and when i say "say im 3 yrs old!" he just laughs- if u ask him his name its the same- what can I do here.. contAnswer Question

I'd start with your pediatrician. Let him/her know that you are concerned your son may be behind in some areas. Your pediatrician can refer you to a private speech therapist or whatever public programs might be available in your area. You can have him tested for speech or other delays. If he's behind, you can get him help, and if he's not behind you'll feel better knowing that. You can also check with the local public school system to see what resources they might have available for preschool age children (Early Intervention generally ends at age 3, and the school system takes over at that point). My son is also 3 and is currently seeing a private speech therapist for speech delay. I originally thought he was significantly behind because I was comparing him to his twin sister and his older sister, but it turned out that they were advanced and he was only slightly behind.
