My daughter had speech delay ( had words but not good clarity) she has struggled with reading. She turned 4 a month before started school. Shes now 5. She struggles with blending ( she shows signs of dyslexia and i am dyslexic so she has higher chance) its starting to click but have had to remind teachers she is one of youngest in class. Doesnt help books are boring. She loves books. It would be better to wait till children ready then they would not need to go through the stage of boring books which put them off ( i was a teacher and have taught a few children through different things such as moving countries and defered entry started later and they did better and had the ability to learn quicker). Natsku i would do games with her. I have discovered a site called nessy.com which has word games (meant to be for dyslexic children 5-8 years old but would work for non dyslexic children) it has games learning blending and strategy vidioes
My daughter absolutly loves and has learnt alot. There is free trial for a month. Its learning without knowing they are learning. Im so glad my ds will be oldest in year, my poor daughter is constantly judged against children who in some cases are neerly a year older and there are very few with birthday neer hers.
My nephew is 3 years old and not yet talking straight. Though he understands what other people s saying to him already. He also knows how to make us understand what he's saying but he's just conversing with one-two words. He's also too playful. Do we need to worry? How late is a late talker, really?
Coolmommy if your family are worried I suggest getting him refered to speech and language list as its a long list. I got my daughter put on age of 3 and she only started speech theropy at 5. They will asses and soon tell you if issue. My daughter had disordered speech so we understood when others couldent as she found some sounds difficult ( we think may be dyslexic as i am and she shows other aigns to). She has come on so much with speech theropy. My 2 year old is now on list as he had a period of deafness due to ear problems. The speech theropists are great. He may be fine as speech comes on alot between ages of 3 and 4 and there is a wide range of what considered normal.
