Any experience with speech therapy?

My 2 year old just qualified for speech therapy. He has very few words, has had some speech regression, and is throwing tantrums from the frustration involved in being nonverbal. At the moment I'm feeling like a huge failure and don't know anyone who has had a child in speech therapy long enough to see results. I really need some success stories

Hey there!

My son is 2 years old too. I'm going through the exact same thing with the fraustrations and tantrums! He has speech delay as well. He started speech therapy about a month ago. There hasn't been a huge change, but some progress. I spoke with other wives and they all had positive feed back. My nephew has speech delay also. My sister-in-law bought a DVD called "Baby Babble". She said it has really helped dramatically. I bought it too, and he's been watching it every day for 3 weeks. The DVD helps with language by using sign language. My son knows how to sign "please", "more" and "eat". And that's just in 3 weeks! I definitely suggest looking into "Baby Babble". I'm sticking with the speech therapy, but still use the extra help from the DVD.
