I assume you've had her hearing checked? Some children are delayed talkers because they can't hear properly.

My son is nearly four and is only really starting to speak in full sentences now but he has a phonological speech disorder with dyspraxic elements.

We have two speech therapists to help but I believe dietary intervention is playing a big role since we have established through a finger prick blood test (IgG testing) that he has intolerances to wheat and gliadin, cows milk, soya, beef, lamb and a range of other intolerances.

Since knocking out dairy, particularly, in tandem with gluten, his speech is improving in leaps and bounds.

I hope your little one starts to speak more fully soon. If not, perhaps speak to a doctor, hearing specialist and, if all else fails, pay privately for an IgG test.

I also agree with the Mum who suggested encouraging your little one to lengthen her sentences. If she says two words, get her to add on a third eg. Biscuit, Biscuit Please, Biscuit Please Mummy, Please Have a Biscuit, Please Can I Have a Biscuit etc.

Also don't just give her something if she points. Make her ask for it as best she can.

Good luck to you.

Sorry. Repeat things to you. instead of "drink" and you getting her a drink have her say "drink please mama" then "have drink please mama" then "can I have a drink please mama" as she gets more word increase the length of what you expect as a sentence. I use a lot of words to talk to my kids. Like "thank you for the blue plate with the orange on it, I love oranges. Do you like oranges?" It encourages them to use more words I think.

some kids will not talk until they have mastered conversation in there own mind but keep asking her questions and talk to her as u would anyone not like a baby she will come around
if u are very worried call your local school district office to see if she qualifies for early childhood education there are birth to three at your home weekly, and 3to5 preK head-start this option would ease your mind and give her an edge on her education.

My middle one was about 2 and 1/4 before she started to talk. I took her to a speech therapist and it ended up that nothing was wrong. If you have any doubts, take her to this kind of specialist. They can put your mind at ease or let you know if they think there is a problem. This daughter of mine is now a graduate of NYU!

There are bang reasons why kids don't talk. Some don't want to, some don't need to, some can't. She sounds like it isn't that she can't but more like won't our doesn't need to. Encourage her to use more words. have her repeat things

You might want to address your concerns with your pediatrician. He/she can help you see if there is some reason for delayed speech or if she's just fine. It never hurts to ask the dr.
