My oldest had a speech delay too. We had his hearing checked to make sure that wasn't the problem and since it wasn't, we went to the elementary school to look into speech classes. He was able to start a week after he turned 3 and went once a week. This last year, we sent him to head-start for 4 days a week and the speech teacher worked with him for about an hour every week. This year, he is in 4K and is still seeing his speech teacher but we can understand over half of what he is saying now. There is also a birth to 3 program around here that might be able to help, but it was too far away for us to travel to every week.
