my eldest son which is two has a language delay/disorder and he cracks tantrums all day because he cant tell me how he is feeling or what he wants it gets very frustrating some times when there is not many people you can talk to outside of family

my daughter was diagnosed with dyspraxia at 18mths which is a developmental disorder she was slow at pretty much everything except walking she's 3 now and her speech is improving by the day i find being honest with her and telling her that i do not understand what she is saying that i need her to stop think about what it is she is trying to say and to say it slowly and this helps alot for us it also eases the frustration because you come down to thier level and just wait and be patient i find for madison she appreciates that but eachwith each new word she learns my heart skips a beat with excitment

My Oldest is 8 and has a Speech dysfunction, everyone found it really hard to understand what she was saying and after trying sign language, flash cards and other learning games i bit the bullet and took her to a speech therapyst and each day she gets better she has been going for 3 years now every fortnight for 30min (she can't concentrate for longer than that) and it's worked out great for us.
My middle child just turned 2 and has said maybe 10 clear words his whole life he jabbers like theres no tomorrow but buggered if anyone knows what he's saying so this comming term he's also starting speech and hopefully it'll work for him and we'll all benifit. Since i started speech my daughters tantrums have almost completly gone now its moved onto my son lol We'll get through it just as you will with alot of love and patience. All the best :)

PECS are what you need... That and some Sign language to help with simple things.. IF your child is not upset cuz you dont understand the CAVE MAN GRUNT as we called it when my son stopped talking after DTaP shot...
WE have words.. I had So many PECS cards made for him.. he still will use them a few times.. but he will bring you a card. you say Oh.. * my son is Josh .. so I would say Oh Josh wants a cookie.. Good asking Josh.... and he got a cookie...
Each time you say Childs name and what they want...
Good luck!!

Hey there, my son is two in April and says very little, if anything at all. He can say a few words like car, mum, bird, but thats about it. I understand how frustrating it is. Ive started letting him read books, i sit there with him and he points to the pictures and i tell him what they are. We've started getting a bit more babble but its a good sign! Once he turns two i think i'll be taking him to a speach patholigst.

Also not sure where you live but there are kindys that take on speech delayed children when he gets to that age if he is still having a problem.

I think that reading helps a great deal, reading with them i mean its something i have always done with my daughter. They do say that boys take longer thou. my newphew is nearly 3 and we still cant understand him half the time. Flash cards are good too makes it a game. Im also a big believer in child care, my daughter who is now 5 1/2 and is excelling in school and i believe that she wouldn't be that way with out child care. my 14 week old son is already booked in for next year. Just a few ideas for you ultimatley he will get there eventually.
