Late talking children
I admit, I am freaking out, just a tiny bit. My daughter spoke 100 words by 12 months. My 16 month old son speaks how many? NONE. He grunts and points. His receptive language is good. He is clearly a smart kid with an interest in his world and a good sense of humor. His ped said if at 18 m he's got nothing he will recommend an evaluation.
He seems to want to say words. He babbles for sure. My question is, is there anything I can do to encourage or help him to talk? Thanks.
