My little boy has a speech problems and need speech therapy his nursery didn't see this an issue until he was around 2 1/2 and put him forward for help, he's hitting all his targets in every other area he's just behind on his talking, I'm not to worried as I can't imagine he'll still be talking like this at 18! I just think some children need abit more help then others but they all get there in the end.

He's a bit behind, but coming along. We were looking at a book today and he was attempting to name lots of things. I was surprised by many of the things he named. "Duck" and "bear" are things he likes to name, but I didn't expect "kitty" and several other things. His words wouldn't be recognized out of context, but paired with the pointing I could tell he was trying to actually say them. He's moving along with things slowly, but surely.

I don't think you can gauge your son's development through comparison with your daughter as she was quite obviously advanced.

Using a PECS system has helped with dd quite a bit.

I left a phone message for the person I scheduled the evaluation with. I want to tell her about how he's made progress since the initial referral and ask at what point we "wait and see" and at what point we go forward with the evaluation. It seems like he's making slow and steady progress. I don't feel too concerned anymore. If he keeps up like this, I would anticipate him speaking in short sentences by 3.
