D's didn't start putting words together until after hi third birthday. He was behind and went to St and ot to help it. What finally helped was transitioning to preschool just after his third birthday. Dd is 20 months and has about 60 words with a few two and three word phrases thrown in.

My DD talked when she was 1. My DS also didn't talk when I thought he should. Everyone told me the same thing, don't compare boys to girls and siblings to one another. I still felt like something wasn't right so we took him to the doctor just before his 3rd bday. I'm glad I did, he was diagnosed with autism (there were other issues too, such as screaming when frustrated). If you're concerned, see his doctor. He might need speech & OT to help. You've got that mom instinct, follow it.

I have twin girls 32 months, 2 1/2 and they are still not talking. They use a lot of words but their pronunciation is unclear. I don't have the money to take them to a specialist. What should I do?

I wish you the best of luck! I know you'll feel better after finding out what's going on. My ds will be 6 in 2 weeks and is doing great.

Boys do take longer to talk than girls. Landon was 2.5 before he really started talking while his sister started talking around 18 months. First born also tend talk later bc there's no one to model unlike siblings that come later.

We didn't have the money either. All we had was medicade through the state. I took our son to his pediatrician. She shared my concern, and referred us to a specialist. Since he was referred, it was covered. Not sure what your situation is, but I'd look into it if you want to have them seen by a specialist. Good luck!
