Hello all –
I'm new to Circle of Moms & this is my first post on here. My daughter turned two in June and so far knows a lot of words already. She can even point to pictures and name them, knows most of her colors, and picks up on words pretty quickly. BUT – she isn't talking in sentences yet. We just had her 2 year well baby visit, and her pediatrician expressed concern in speech delay as she said she should be at least talking in two-worded sentences by now. She referred me over to a speech therapist for her, but before I do that, is there anything I should truly be worried about? I know kids learn at their own pace and some learn faster than others, so maybe she's just not ready yet? I mean, she's a little talker so there's definitely an interest in talking – just not in sentences yet.
Does anyone else share a similar story?
