 Hi. My ds is 2 yrs old, and he doesnt say much words. He of course has his own baby talk. lol. But does anyone know any educational videos that actually help toddlers learn to say words and learn things. We do communicate with him everyday. Anyone got any ideas.

 We did "baby's first words" books.  Pronounce the word slowly, point to the picture and asked if she could say it.  Read three different word books at least once a day.  After a couple months she was talking non-stop.

my ds had a similar problem. Our ped suggested a program called zero to three project. Or your state may have something similar. But they have a "teacher" come by work with you and your ds to help with his speech. They even helped get him into a preschool at 3 yrs that would help him along. So when he started kindergarten he was at a level above the regular students. look under your state .gov website for child development resources. hope that helps.

Yo Gabba Gabba. As soon as DD started watching it her vocabulary skyrocketed. She is 2.5 and still learns words off of it and will now sing some of the songs. Plus there are plenty of songs on there that you could use to your advantage to try to get him to remember things (i.e., "Try it! You'll like it!" "Inside voice...quiet...inside voice...shh" kind of thing).

Read to him. I wouldn't expose him to any television if he isn't speaking. Work with him one on one with asking for things.
