my son will be 3 in June, and seems to not talk, i know he can i have heard him do it. he has a little problem pronouncing most words. but he is supper smart in every other aspect, the Dr has told me he has a comprehending of a child at lest a year more than his age. up tell now i just keep telling my self that Albert Eisenstein didn't talk tell he was 7 and its all ok. but now we are talking about early preschool. with out speech i'm a little worried that it will keep him out of the classes he really needs. we have the summer to get him up to speed before the first test. any one know what could be going on or any ways to help fix this with out speech classes. keep in mind he can just dont want to. he is also an only child at the moment.Answer Question

Oh My! I'll trade you!!!!!! My daughter just turned 4 and won't shut up. From the time she gets up until the time she goes to bed the constant chatter never ends. She's not perfectly clear yet, but like your son she can she just won't. If it's a hard sound, at all (to her), she'll use the "duh" sound to indicate the syllable. Example: dehduhduhr for sweatshirt. We're working with her to get it right, she's just super stubborn.
I wouldn't worry too much though. Like mamamel said, start small. Get him to say words to you at home to get what he wants. "I'm sorry sweetie, I don't understand pointing; you need to tell me what you want".
