Ok , my non-verbal son is now 6 and is starting to mouth words but isn't using his voice yet. I think he is on the road to talking soon, what do u ladies think and has it happened to one of ur children?

my son still mouths words along with the Tv or anything else he knows by heart.  He has limited language. So yes I think this is a positive step towards speech!

DD also did this at times and still speaks very quietly. How exciting for you. I encourage you to find a quiet place when he does this and tell him you know he is trying to tell you something and see if you can prompt him to speak louder. What great progress! Keep us posted
