My daughter is 15 months old and her language is pretty non existent, I know at this age she should only be saying 3 or 4 words but she seems to have gone backwards. She used to say mama but now when you ask her to say it she just points. She does still babble a lot but no real words. The doctor mentioned having a speech assessment done but she's able to communicate through other means by signing and pointing. So my question is have any moms had a speech assesment and worked with a specialist at such a young age? And what would you do? I also would like to add it's not her hearing she responds to her name, knows her body parts when asked she points to them, and is able to follow directions when asked/told to do something. Thanks in advance for any suggestions and help!
