My son is 16 months. We took him to his well baby check up and the pediatrician was concerned because he can only say mama and dada, so he recommened speech therapy. I guess I'm just wondering what I can expect, and if there is anything I can do at home to help. Thanks!Answer Question
My son is also in speech therapy he is four now though, Music helps, and just having him repeat things that you say there is allot you can do look it up online but the therapy definitely helps my son is a totally different person and its better to catch it and deal with it now instead of later.

Do you have a good pediatrician? I mean I know many children who started to speak when they were 4 years old. And 16-month-old is the age of toddler groups in nursery. There are some children who start to talk early and there are some who wait until they have something to say. Don't worry. He will start to speak when he will be ready. If he has something else illness than you can take him to a speech therapist. But I wouldn't worry too much about it:)
