Just found out my kids speech therapist is retiring and I'm at a loss on who to get now! My kids loved her! They had her for along time, but I'll figure it out!
My now 13 year old went through the same thing at first they thought she was deaf and we saw all these specialists. Turned out she just had that going on we did speech therapy for bout 2-3 years . She started talking slowly after bout 6 months or so n it was just lil’ words . After a year -year n half she started to develop stuff . Such a god sent n the lady whom we had I can’t thank her enough for getting my baby too talk .
ST here. I definitely say the earlier you can get your child into speech therapy, the better! Early intervention is such a great thing!
Im going through the same thing. I feel better know im not the only mother experiencing this.
My son is in speech once a week also. Omg I think he has improved since the day he first started.
My son started daycare twice a week and speech therapy once a week back in October and we've seen a good bit of progress. They are no longer focusing on expanding his vocabulary but instead on strengthening his motor control on certain sounds. For example he will say his name is Ryer, without the 'k" for Ryker. We are starting to see some 2-3 word combos but he mostly communicates with single words. He will be 3 in May. It's best to get them evaluated by a professional in my opinion than to wait.
