You may be using them already but visual schedules and visual charts have helped my son out tremendously. Before Christmas he was saying a few 2 word phrases but mostly making sounds when he wanted something ( he was about 3 yrs behind with speech/language) he has since started to use more words and we are up to sometimes 4 word phrases!!!! Sending tons of respect and encouragement your way.

What type of developmental delays does your son have? I am the mom of a 4 yr old high functioning autistic son. I have learne and ton and have found that the best source of info is for other moms.
