I have been going through a lot knowing that my daughter is speech delayed. But thankfully she is getting therapy three times a week. I know it is not a day and night thing and that this does take a lot of time, but when will I ever hear her talk a full clear word?
I see others kids her age already speak clearly (she's 31 months), and it breaks my heart. I also see other mother's faces when they ask "OMG she doesn't talk?!", like if my daughter is from a different world and there are no kids with this delay. Having a child with a speech delay has been very difficult but we have been doing everything possible to get her the help that she needs. Now we leave it in God's hands. She is very bright in everything else and understands so much. She recently started calling her dad "dada", she says oh uh, says no, bye bye, and tries to say yes. She also attempts to say words like apple but separate like aaaaa pooo.
I just wanted to vent and any mom's positive advice or feedback will be so much appreciated!
