My concern is that my 30 month old is not speaking much. There are so many languages around him as we are based is Switzerland( engish/ german/ hindi). His common word is 'mama' and he uses it almost everywhere. Other words are papa, car(sounds like caaaaa), nana, app( for apple),gaba( for gauva) , some word which sounds like 'woh kya hai'( means what is that) but these also I have to force him to speak. On his own he speaks his own langauge which not even a single word I can understand. For the past few months I am really after him to speak, repeating things, telling stories etc but not of much use. Should I leave him to himself and not be after him so much. Please suggest ???? He understands almost everything, knows body parts, associates words with pictures,solves puzzles, plays with blocks, understand when we give a two sentence statement , takes me to bathroom for toilet and potty, pulls my hand takes me to kitchen for water, nods his head for 'no',likes listening to his favourite story book,favourite CD .... and plays happily in his pre-school with other kids. He likes being around with children.
All children of his age are speaking a lot.Suggest me what should I do to make him speak
I was concerned about my son when he did not start talking even when he was 1.5 years. I realised this, bcoz my nephew talked very clearly at the age of 1.5 years. When i spk to our Health visitor here, she advise to concentrate on local language and mother tongue, so we started speaking to him only in English and since then there was no looking back. He started reading fluently from the age of 3.5 years.
Some parents think, they will learn slowly, but i think we must know the real reason and act on it asap, as i know someone whose daughter has the same prob and they neglected it and that girl still has prob ith talking even tho she is about 10 years now. So, best thing is to get a solution and act on it NOW.
