My son now 7 used to bite all the time. Mainly out of frustration because he could not get his words out. It takes patience and consistancy of letting him know its not ok
I would tell my son no and put him a in a small time out if he bit me or my daughter whom he got often. If I was lucky enough to catch him before he bit me I would just give him a chew toy and tell him that was ok to bite. Depending on the situatation depends on what you have to work on them with. So we gave him clues for words like pictures to help and objects to point to. He bit until almost 3 when he finally was able to use his words.
