 Meagan's Musings... A Blog 
Tuesday, June 23 2009

Dear Son will be two next month.  He is still not talking.  I don't mean two or three word sentences - I mean not saying two or three words.

Not that he hasn't ever. 'Mum-mum', 'dad-dad', 'stuck', 'ta', 'whassat', 'there-it-is' have all been around at some stage.  But now they're gone and all we have is 'sssss' for the noise that a snake makes.

  • Boys are later than average to talk than girls.
  • He comprehends and that's the most important part.
  • He has eye contact and is social
  • He's not two yet and kids at this age vary so much in the rate at which they begin to verbalise

The above points were made by a speech pathologist I took DS to very recently - meant to reassure me.  So I should just relax, right??
Then I go and read other stuff.  Stuff about a disorder I've been hearing a lot of lately - apraxia.
This is the article:
Late Talkers - Correctly Diagnosing Speech Disorders.

Sigh.  So now what?  I guess I just wait some more.  Another few months.......
Wait and worry silently from within and hope that one day very soon, just one, tiny, intelligible word tumbles from my child's lips.

Ni night from one of those neurotic, worried mothers.
