My 2.5 year old son doesn't talk very much. He understands a bit but not as much a child his age should. He can only say one word at a time and his vocab has a total of 10 words. He is seeing a speech therapist and she is a little concerned that his progress isn't what it should be for the intervention that he is getting on a day to day basis. I am taking him for a appointment with the pediatrician for full developmental assessment soon. I am getting pretty concerned. Has anyone had experience with a child with delay in speech and what did you do to encourage them to start talking?
