My son just turned 3 this April and still isn't talking. At his 2 year checkup, his pediatrician said he was not autistic. My husband and I don't really see any signs of this either. However, he still isn't talking so I'm not sure what the ped. will say at his 3 year checkup. The strange thing is that when he does attempt to say things (which is very rare) he can only get the beginning of the word out and it is very breathy! For instance the word "that" would come out something like, thththahahahat or the word "bread" would be, bbbrrreaaa! We have had his hearing checked and that isn't the problem either. Has anyone ever encountered something like this before? Any tips would be helpful!
