Need Advice...2 Yr. Old Grandson Has Speech Delay Problems
Wednesday, August 07, 2013
Does anyone have any experience with language delay problems in young children??? My grandson just turned 2 years old and isn't talking. He says sounds, but most are not actual words. My son had his hearing checked and that's fine. Yesterday he was checked out and was diagnosed with "moderate receptive language delay and severe expressive language delay". Of course, we're all very upset because this sweet little boy is so bright and smart and we can't imagine him having any problems at all!! He has to go to therapy once a week. Does anyone know if speech therapy helps and what can my son and his wife do to at home to help him? They've been doing all the usual stuff that parents do to encourage learning...they're wonderful parents. I'd love to hear any advice anyone can give! Thank You!!
