I would like to start by welcoming everyone to my group. My name is Jewell. I'm 22 years old and live in Washington. I have 2 sons and am an at home mom. Riley 2 1/2, and Dakota 11 months. Riley is my toddler who is delayed in his speech. He can only say about 4 or 5 words, and he doesn't even say "mama" or "dada" anymore. We had him in speech therapy for awhile, all she was able to teach him in 6 months was how to say and sign for "more". He did this everytime he wanted something to eat or drink whether he had some already or not. So, we decided to take him out of it and I work with him at home. We use pictures, read books, and I talk to him CONSTANTLY. I'm always up for new advice cause it's going very slowly. We've also recently started to try the long hard journey of potty training, as all of you should know this is even more difficult with a special child like ours, because it's really hard to communicate with him. So once again welcome, please introduce yourself.
