My little brother and one of my nephews didn't speak for a long time as well. They both, we find out way later, were born with a short under the tongue latch. You know the piece of thin flesh that connects the tongue to the bottom of the mouth? Yeah, so they got it clipped and the kids started talking IMMEDIATELY! Crazy I know, right? When my eldest brother had his son and he wasn't talking, I was the one who remembered the story from our little brother. Man, I am so glad God blessed me with a great memory :)

If the doctor says she should be talking, which is true she should be, you should probably get another opinion or get her set up for speech therapy. The doctor should have done something already.

From experience, you should at least get a hearing test done: as soon as possible.

I would be getting a referal to a speach therapist. You didn't say if was your GP or a specialist that has said there is not reason for not to talk.



She's going to be starting school soon and if she's not talking then she's already way behind. It's harder to learn how to write if you can't sound out the words.
