Shy Kids:not started talking
2002-05-23
Name: sudha my son turned 2 on april 23rd. he utters single words like amma,appa,thatha...etc,but has not started framing sentences. moreover he does not address me as amma. he just yells till he gets his work get done. he expresses his needs well,but we are lightly impatient to know how fast can we help him to talk. i take him to a playschool where the parents are expected to sit with their toddlers and help them to learn or play. thanks in advance.

Hi,
I suggest that you take your son to a speech therapist. They will be able to assess if his speech is age appropraite and if he needs any help. My daughter is 4.5. We identified she has a speech delay when she was 2.5. We started taking her to a therapist from when she was 3. The therapy helped a lot. Her speech is still not age appropriate, but she has progressed a lot now.

Subject:  same with my son
My son 30 months old now, is still not talking and talks in monosyllables. His doctor says that everything is normal and says my son might be confused as we don't use single laguage at home. Doctor asked me to see a therapist. Now therapist has been coming to my place twice a week for last one month. Still its not helping. My son is able to convey all his needs, he talks but doesn't use right words. What he talks doesn't make any sense to us. He seems to be frustrarted at times when he tells me something but I am not able to understand. I am working full time. He stays at home with his grandmother. Is anybody else facing/faced same problem? Please advise what can be done.

Hi,

I agree with Nimma.Often u will hear pediatricians saying give the child some time.Well thats fine.But guys don't fool urselves.It is ok if a child is delayed and is moving at his pace.But if u have doubts about anything please seek help.Even if ur doctor says he is fine get a second opinion.Time is precious and so is ur child's progress.Get help soon.

Subject:  Does not talk
My son is 33 months old and still he is talking in momosyllables. Sometimes he says proper words but he is not at all consistent with that.He is perfectly normal, he listens but he just likes to do routine things.He is very physical and full of energy.He has learned bicycle , started swimming but not speaking. He is going to daycare for 3 hrs. for past 6 months.Things have changed since then but not speech wise.I am really worried about his speech delay, any suggestions!
Thanks.
Shruti

Subject:  Donot panic, it is quite normal
Dear Sudha,
Please donot be so worried.My son began talking properly when he was 2.5 years old.I sent him to school when he was 2 yrs 3 mths.For the first three months he wouldnot say anything but after that he began to talk.Now he is 3.5 yrs and he is doing very well in school.He picked up very fast as soon as he started talking.

So, if possible please send him to a school where he can just play for 1 hour with other kids. This will teach him more than what he learns at home.

Besides, donot expect too much from him or perfection.If he cannot do something just relax.Boys tend to do things a little late. But once he picks up, he will make up.

Thanking you,
Yours sincerely,
Papia Ghosh

hi papia,
thanks a lot for the suggestion. i have been sending my kid to a british summer camp for the past one month. till then he used to utter the names of animales,fruits,colors,shapes etc. now he has started saying the common words like eat,sit,jump,drink, sleep etc. he has not started forming sentences yet. probably in another 2 months he would be comfortable with it. he has also started interacting with other kids b'coz of the camp.

Hi Sudha
Just do not get over worked about this issue. My son is 2 & 1/2 years old. Like your son he started speaking in monosyllables when he was 2. I took him to his pediatrician. He assured me that my son was quite normal.
Some kids take time to speak, specially boys. Talk to him constantly. Tell me every thing you do, step by step in words. These days, with the increase in nuclear family, most kids do not have many people to talk to or interact with. That is why they take time to speak.
Do not parrot him. Encourage him constantly to talk. Do not put pressure on him. He will surely speak fluently within 4 months. You put in your effort. Do not expect miracles. Slowly & steadily he will start speaking well.
It is from my personal experience that I am telling this to you.
All the Best to you, Sudha.
Bye . Cacth up with you soon.

hi vimala,
thanks a lot for the suggestion. we stay in oman. due to the isolation here it takes lot of time for the kids to pick up the language. socialising is very difficult here as everyone is busy in their own world. i have been sending my kid to a british summer camp for the past one month. till then he used to utter the names of animals,fruits,colors,shapes etc. now he has started saying the common words like eat,sit,jump,drink, sleep etc. he has not started forming sentences yet. probably in another 2 months he would be comfortable with it. he understands whatever we speak.he has also started interacting with other kids b'coz of the camp.
bye

hi,
did you discuss your concern with your pediatrician?If not,that should be your next move.The doctor will be able to tell if your son has delayed milestones and might advice you on how to teach him to talk.If needed the doctor could refer you to a speech therapist.Dont wait too long!

Hello dear this is really nothing to worry as its very common and you should not take this matter as a big concern as kids at this age are normally shy and they do not like meeting new people infact they want only their friends and all with them.... - Anita [View Message]
RE:Shyness right or wrong?
According to me you should take your child to a counselor and ask her what is the exact problem as this is not common and you should get into it as soon as possible and understand the real reason behind the same, please do not ignore this its a request.... - Anaida [View Message]
