How does your 2 1/2 year old talk? !!UPDATE!!
My almost 30 month old can say anything at this point but he still speaks telegraphically. What I mean is, he leaves out articles and prepositions still. And he also pauses between each word.
For example, he just said: mommy. Do it. Self.
That means, mommy, I did it by myself!
I'm wondering if this is typical or not.
I had early intervention come out and they did his evaluation today. The speech pathologist agreed that he does speak telegraphically and she said because he has a large vocabulary, he should be speaking in more of an adult like way. So he qualifies for services and we begin on Monday.
I was kind of surprised because I thought that they would say, "He's fine." But they didn't and that makes me happy to know that my instincts were right and that they actually listened to me. I wanted their professional opinion and that is what I got. :)
