How can u get my 2year old to stop
cooing? He doesn't sayanything. Not
even mama or no. He just coos all the
time. He came from an abused home
where he was neglected and has been
here for 2 mths.

Hey mama,

It sounds like he has a speech delay.  My best suggestions would be.

1. Speak to a pediatrician immediately.  When you leave her office, you need at least two referrals.  One for a speech therapist and one for a child psychologist.  Make sure your ped also checks his other milestones to ensure he doesn't need other services like occupational therapy or physical therapy.

2. Visit the speech therapst sooner rather than later.

3. Visit the child psychologist immediately.  Your child will have a lot of trouble transitioning.  You and him are going to need a lot of help ensuring that he's in the best hands :)

Good luck!  You have your work cut out for you!  I'd suggest joining the Foster and Adoptive Moms group here on Cafemom.  They can give you a lot more advice about how to handle these situations.  Many of those moms have a lot more experience with it.!
