Hey guys! Appreciate the help! I have a son who is slightly speech delayed and is in speech therapy....(just 3). He is coming along in leaps and bounds is a social child and besides hyperactivity and limited eye contact has no other worrying symptoms of any apparent kind (toilet trained can ride a bike and do things other chidren at this age can do).
My question is that sometimes I will ask him a question, such as "what coulor is your shirt" and he will respond with "its a truck on my shirt??" If I ask again he then usualy gives the right anwer such as "green" but I dont know If he is guessing what im asking etc??? He answers yes and no questions. Follows instructions. He answers simple questions but not open ended or abstract such as "what did you do today?". When did your kids start answering these things and did anyone else have a problem with this?
