Re: almost 2yrs and not talking? Please help!

My ds is three and a half and didn't start talking until he was 2. And that was only one word at a time. He didn't start putting together little sentences until he was close to three. Now, in the past month, he is finally starting to use longer sentences.

We were worried for a long time. We thought he might be autistic, we thought he had a hearing problem (he doesn't, we had that checked). We had him in speech and occupational therapy (which was VERY expensive and he had minimal improvement with it).

Now, I am convinced that some kids just don't talk when they're expected to. I know he's not autistic now because he shows no signs of being. And like I said, he is improving daily, so we are no longer worried. I hope that helped a little.
