When my son was 2 1/2 he didn't speak very much. Then one doctor said - some kids think more than speak. Then six months later he started to talk more and more Today - he will be graduating from college - with an English Degree. So, one thing I know I did wrong - I used to give him yes and no questions. Then my sister told me - make him tell you what he wants. So - it took time to break my habit - but then the more I gave him choices - the more he spoke. My son always did great in school. He was selected to be the speaker for many events. He read the reading at church. He is the Student Writing Manager of his college.
