My little guy was completely nonverbal, so his therapist focused on
teaching him basic sign language and taught him how to use PECS (picture
cards) to tell us what he wanted. He finally started talking around 4.

My son (he’s 14 now) had speech delay as well. We did EI with with a speech
therapist starting at age 3 till about age 7. I can say now, 3 more kids
later. Every kid is different and develop on their own time. Eventually,
all kids will talk. I stressed over my son not talking as much as other
kids his age, and I wish I didn’t. That’s great you are being proactive

Awesome! My son was in therapy for about 10 months. Best decision we could
have made. His issues stemmed from hearing issues.

My son is in speech therapy. 2.5, they are also watching for Apraxia. Flash
cards and sign language have helped us a lot!

Thanks for sharing your experience. I have a three year daughter who also
has a speech delay. She received help from a state funded program called
Babies can’t wait. They were wonderful. They only provided services till
her third birthday and now we are going through the school system with an
IEP. we did private therapy for a while but we saw no improvements and

I am so glad you posted this video because my 20 month old son has a speech
delay and he will be starting speech therapy soon. I feel so much better
knowing this is common in boys and the great information and support that’s
out there. Please post other videos on this subject really appreciate it.

the good thing is if he does end up having a solid diagnosis, he will be
able to get in home speech therapy until five – my son is on his last year
of therapy but to be honest he doesn’t even need it this year, he’s so far
ahead of the game from where he started due to just my time and effort with

Thank you tor sharing, Dana. My son Z is 4 1/2 and he’s come a long way. He
still jibbers before sayings a word or a 3 word sentence but not often. He
was evaluated at age 3 (I think) and that where it was shown. Thank you for
sharing that I’m not the only one ^_^

My daughter was nonverbal till she was almost 5. The thing that helped her
most was music. I did most all her therapy myself and we had a tss worker
for about a year and her BCA said when she finds her voice it will progress
quickly and it sure has. she is 6 and still has a lot to work on. she has a
lot to say.

I’m glad I watched this! When you mentioned Apraxia, and explained what it
was, I started reading more about it. Theres certain sounds, my son just
can’t sound out. And he just turned 4.

Hope his speech continues to improve! Goodluck!

Would it be alright if I did a sort of response video on this topic? My
almost 11 year old is still in speech therapy (his is due to hearing loss
though) amazing what can be accomplished with speech therapy. He is now
learning to do different sounds by feel because he can’t hear them.

Thank you. Noah has a delay as well. We are waiting on a speech eval. These
are very helpful things for me to implement until we get started.

Thanks for sharing! My son is 4 and just finishing up his second block of
speech therapy. He tended to leave consonants out which we have mostly
mastered and now on to the ‘s’ followed by a consonant sound and the ‘l’
sound. We use the cards too and we are supposed to take a short “homework”
time every day to work on them using different games and the rest of the
day we aren’t supposed to correct him. If we catch him doing it right we
cheer him on but we let errors go if outside of homework time. We are also
supposed to emphasize the sounds when WE are talking. I should make a video
on this topic. I am passionate about early intervention!
