Speech:Delayed Speech
2002-12-21
Name: Nitita das My child is almost 2 years old and is still not talking. He prefers pointing to things and gesturing to people instaed of opening his mouth and speaking. This delay in speech (and I hope it is simply a delay) is really worrying me and my husband. What do you think we should do?

Thank God, I joined this forum. I have just posted my message about my son (2 years) not speaking complete sentance.
Every one keps me telling not to worry.
So I am really relaxed after reading the same problem here. Now what i feel is It is not at all a problem.
After some months, we all will perhaps, make a fun of overselves about worring so much for ourkids speach.
Good luck to every one and good luck to me too.
Bye.
Sunita

Dear Sister,
Don't worry. My son is 3 years 5 months old and has very less vocabulary.
All says he will pick up. Don't worry things will happen as the time passes.

My ds is 22 months old and does not speak in sentences or phrases yet. He has a vocabulary of 20-30 words. He points at things. He babbles constantly. At that my dd was fully coherent and spoke clearly in sentences. I am not comparing the two, but could it be that he has speech delay? He has been adding new words every day though. My friends say he is normal and boys talk later than girls. We are bilingual but that was not a problem for his sister. Did anybody have any similar experience or any advise.
Thanks

Hi, Dont worry if ur son is still not talking. My son is 2years 3 months and he has just stared talking few words now, when he was 2 he hardly spoke much. But gradually now i am seeing a sudden change in him.

I have spoken to the doctor and even to friends and many have said that their children also had the same problem and they started speaking once they were 3 years. Just be patient, read lots of books, tell him stories etc he will surely increase his vocab and start speaking soon.

Take care

My friend you really don't need to worry about your child not speaking. I consult to may parents in my subarban county daycare center and you will amazed at how many parents have the same concerns. As long as there is no family history of speech problems, it is more than likely that your son will grow up fine and will not have any speech defects. Some children start talking sooner than others, so it is better not to keep comparing. Afterall, are you even similar to your sister (ask your mother!). Hope you feel better reading this message.
