Hey Everyone I recently took Carson to his 18 month check up and his peditrician asked how he was speaking and all the words he knew, I said he says a few words like Mama, Dada, Juice, and Kitty is about the just of it, she explained that they like to see toddlers at this age saying 6-8 words clearly, I was stunned. I completely think I know my child and he is very reserved and shy, so I figured he would develope his speech slowly, but she seemed concerned and suggested we consult a speech pathologist. I feel really responsible for his delay, like maybe I haven't encouraged him enough to voice his needs. What do you ladies think? Should I wait and see how he does, How do you encourage speech development in toddlers? Any ideas or suggestions are greatly welcomed.
