  • I had a 15 year old son that had the vocabulary of a college student when he started school, and my 5 year old has done everything early, from talking, to walking at 9 months old...

    So the part that breaks my heart, daily, iswatching my 3 year old that I simply cannot understand a lot of the time because he does not talk properly. We are in the process with a speech therapist trying to figure out how/what on earth is the problem? I too have done flash cards,, LeapFrog toys and materials, Jump Start program, having him watch my mouth as I annunciatethings... and I pray with all my heart he is normal or ahead when school starts like the rest?

    If you do learn anything pretty please send me a Private message!!! I would love to help my son, and I would be grateful for all

  • i went thru the same with my son until he started pre-k and started talking correctly. it just takes time and patience.

  • My DD of 4 is extremely delyaed in speech, I often talk to her speech pathologist. One thing we have found that can be a useful tool is sign langage(baby sign)( and saying the word as well).. It stimulates the same part of the brain. Soe children arwe hands on learns while some are listeners ect..Just an idea
