Quoting Elaina Layden:" this is off topic but does he get birth to three? My son is two and also has a delay in speech. He speaks ... [snip!] ... waiting for him to be ready bc you can not force him to if hes not ready. I bought 3day potty training and its very helpful."
He's been in speech therapy since he was 15 months old (his pedi recommended it. This was also when he was delayed in more than just the speech/communication areas) and he has a lady from the school come to our house once a week to work with him. The hospital that he goes to speech at actually sent us a letter in the mail the other day "reminding" us that if there isn't any steady improvement in Ian's speech, that they'll have to drop him. =[
