is it wrong to not teach your child how to speak? he is already 5, and no one that doesnt know him (even i who ive known him for 3 years) can understand him. he says "Bloater" for brother, cant says his "R's" (i know that is a hard one though) cant say his "K's" calls a banana a "Naner" still.. i could keep going on and on, he cant even speak in full sentences. his parents dont help him learn, or correct him at all. i think he is old enough now to be corrected so that he understand how to properly say the word. his 2 yr old brother doesnt speak yet either. he just grunts and cries and points to what he wants. its not a disorder it is just the parents dont TEACH them...
who else thinks that is wrong???

Or maybe the parents don'tsee it as of big of a deal as you do,or she doesn't know what to o about it? Have you let them know that you are concerned about this child's speech? My ds had speech problems and I put him in a preschool program at the local elementary. Maybe you could encourage her to do something like that. Most elementary schools have screenings for such situations
