Lets Talk About Toddler Talk

  1. It’s never too early! My kid has a lot of words too and struggles with pronunciation. He’s been in speech therapy since he was 2 years old so seven months now and he’s doing great!! We alternate 1-2 times per week. Make sure you find a really good therapist that your kid likes and they think it’s fun that helps a lot!

    I say go for it! You’ve got nothing to lose!

    Ironically my husband and I were just discussing starting speech therapy for our two year old. He communicates very well just not with words. He does have a handful of words down but still mostly uses baby gibberish. We’re wondering if he’s struggle to form the sounds? Nevertheless, we were told we could start with him at two so I think Oshiolema should be able to start now.

      That’s great! If it’s encouraging, my son went to “speech camp” for one week and it’s already made SUCH a tremendous difference!

    Both my girls have needed speech therapy and it was a lifesaver!
    I was personally offended when my preschool after a screening for my older was called “unintelligible” by the speech language pathologist. Then I learned that only meant that for a stranger, they just couldn’t understand a large percentage of what she said. Which was true.
    So she was in speech therapy her entire school year of being in “4-prek” and made great strides.
    My younger daughter didn’t get the same early intervention but she’s in speech now with the SLP at her elementary school. I’m thankful that the public school system has these tools in place to help us where we don’t have the expertise ourselves.
