I deployed and when I came back my then 2yr old was not talking at all but since I have been back I have her in a preschool program & seeing a speech therapist. She says words when she wants but once you know she knows the word she doesnt say it anymore. For example she wanted strawberries one day so I said say strawberry and I will give you one she said but now she wont say anymore. She likes the book Brown bear what do you see. So when she is looking at the book she will say white dog white dog what do you see, but if I try to get her to say it again she doesnt. When she wants something she doesnt tell me if she wants a drink she will hand me her cup if she wants something to eat she will grab my hand & take me in the kitchen but if I ask her do you want a sandwich yes she will shake her head saying yes. I just want to know if this normal of if anyone else experience this?
