I haven't dealt with anything like this, but if you feel concerned about your son I think you should try to get a new program for him. Im not sure if that would be an option, but I think you should speak to his doctor about your concerns and maybe he/she can help. Just my thoughts, hope someone else can be more helpful.

If your taking care of his every need, maybe he sees no reason to talk. And then too, we accept people who are quiet ... they were probably never talkers as little kids.

I am being bold telling you this only because you have already had him in speech that you said ends when he is 3. You need to call your local school district and have your son evaluated. If he is delayed in speech and/or anything else they will do testing on him and he will get services for free. If he needs to be he can attend a preschool for special needs children or just speech therapy if that is all he needs. Call and ask them all kinds of questions that it sounds like you have.  Good luck mama, hope you  can get him the help he needs soon!!

if he's still not talking he should still be getting speech.. although he probably will have to move to a preschool version of the program.. 

my youngest, (2 1/2) is in speech because she was saying very little.. on january 1rst she'll switch from the early intervention to the prek/school aged programs..  she's made a lot of improvements through the program though..

I would talk to his pediatrician, get a referral and call your local school districts special education office to see about getting him back into a speech program.

It's okay, it takes time.. do you feel the therapist isn't taking an approach your son may be more responding with?  or are you more worried that their may be something else hindering his speech?  And have you addressed either of these issues (if you feel they are issues) during the evaluation?

Get him into pre school. My ds did months of st and ot and made almost no progress. When he turned three he transitioned into the preschool program through the district and with in a month or two he was speaking whole paragraphs and telling me stories. It was amazing! This was the kid that could barely string two words together before and only had about 50 words total. Now, at 5, he is completely caught up.

Hopefully. Its nerve wracking wondering if he's ever going to talk and if there is anything you could have done to avoid it.
