my son is 3 and a half yr old. We have come to Australia a year back. My son is not speaking as much as his age group should and goes to childcare twice a week .There is now lanuage barrier and he is confused whick makes his language delay. Can anyone tell me what how to improve his language as what he speaks is roughly understood

by 3 1/2 your child should be talking in full sentences at least 4 words strung together I would look into speech therapy. A speech patholigist can help you to understand ways to help your son speak clearly and help him to get his point across without frustration.

Do you speak a language other then english? Maybe try working with him with little flash cards, you can get cheap ones that have animals,colours, numbers shapes, fruit and veggies and help him learn these. As long as he is making an attempt to say the word encourage him. Also speak to his childcare to see if they can encourage him more during the day. I found just keep working at it slowly and then one day they will just floor you with what they can say!!!!
