My toddler is 2 years, 3 months and does not say many words. My doctor stated that Head Start offered speech therapy, however when I called you total household income has to be under $17K. Do you know of any other programs for toddlers? I'm in So Cal - Corona area.

Try a pediatric outpatient facility. You can go the American Speech and Hearing Association website www.asha.org and look for a Speech-Language Pathologist in your city. Andrea MA CCC-SLP

My son will be 4 in September. He has been through a year of preschool with speech therapy. While there has been some improvment, I still am concerned about his speech. He leaves off the first letters of 90% of the words he says. In fact he calls me aaay (daddy). He calls his sister iss instead of sis but he does call his mommy mom-mom. Is this a specific condition or just another unidentified problem?
Any help would be appriciated. Email me at [email protected]

I have a two year old son that has a rich vocabulary but never opens his mouth. He can say elephant, zebra..train..over 50 words and he can can count to 10 without ever opening his mouth. The thing is we can understand him through his closed lips. It is almost as though he hums the word. We have started researching what to do and it appears that the therapy is the next approach. I am looking for any guidance or if any one else has encountered this.

Ken our grandson will be 3 in February and is experiencing the same as your 2 year old son. He has been tested for hearing, mouth structures, and gets OT and ST weekly. No one has ever heard of this. Have you found out any information on this? Thanks in advance. 3749

Hi there I happened to run in to your post while searching for help for my two year old.
I live in Corona and took my little one to have an evaluation from my Doctor which only suggested to wait until he's three to get therapy thru the school district. Never heard of the Inland Regional Center??? Where do I start? I'm willing to do anything I just don't want to wait until he's 3...

Hi Tara... here's a great solution that worked for us... A book called: The Talking Baby: Simple Tricks And Techniques To Encourage Your Baby To Speak Sooner. Our baby was speaking by 10 months.

Hi everyone. I have been one of those hesitant mothers hoping her child will grow out of it. but my daughter is not talking very much yet and she is three. the school district told me to seek them out when she is three if she is not talking. well i don't want to go to the school district because I'm afraid they will keep them at a disabled level throughout their stay at the school. well she understands everything. she understands English and Spanish. she tries to speak some words in both languages. but i see she has trouble pronouncing words. but she is very bright and understands everything you ask her to do. One important thing is she is super shy, even with grandparents. even with dad sometimes. she speaks to me, mom, a lot in her own ways. but it's only me she opens up to. Please help she is 3 and she does want to go to school like 5-year-old sis.

No I haven't had my child tested, but I don't think that is the problem. If she wouldn't be able to hear she wouldn't do half the things or respond to my commands like she does. By the way since I last wrote to this forum, my daughter has improved some what. she is repeating more words, she tries to pronouce them more than before. And while she plays with her older sister she is saying more words on her own. They are not very clear but she is trying. I am sounding out letters before asking her to say the word. so basically I am sort of doing speech exercises the best I can. I am no speech therapist but i do my best. the other day driving into a parking lot at the supermarket she said "Bih tuk" mommy. Then I saw there was a large truck next to us. I was so happy to hear those words! But I still think she needs some kind of speech therapy but the one place I called said I should take her to the school district. I don't want to because when she improves it will take a lot to get her out of those special classes. Ive seen parents go through that and seen how their children suffer because those classes are too much of a low level for them.

You do have another option. Have you considered online speech therapy? This is very similar to traditional therapy but it can be provided at home using your computer. It is totally secure and the therapists hold the same credentials and licenses as those providing therapy in a clinic or at the school. Try this site http://www.independentspeech.com They customize the sessions to your daughters needs so it is right on target for her.
Good Luck!

Thank you so much! I will try that. You know I think I will also try to get her ears checked I just found out that even if they respond to you when you talk to them or ask them things they may not be able to hear the low sounds. these may go unnoticed. so now I worry maybe she has something in her ear because she is not delayed in anything else but sounds. but thank you again for providing me this information.

Hey everyone. My son is 2 years 6 months and says probably less than 10 words. He was first referred to speech therapy at 18 months but we were on such a long waitlist that he didn't get seen by a therapist (for an assessment) until 1.5 months ago. but then the program we were signed up for got cancelled. I am at the point where I'm done waiting for the health system and now looking for private help. I've tried a few methods such as holding out on him until he attempts to say what he wants, letting him have a tantrum in an attempt for him to tell me what he wants, etc. but no luck. Anyone have any ideas/methods that have worked or suggestions for me?
