My 4 year old is not talking.

My son is 4 yrs old & is not talking. He will only say 1-2 words & it's not consistent. He understands everything that is being said & follows directions very well, just no communication. He's been going to speech therapy once in a week since October. Does anyone else have this kind of issue with their child?

hi there, my son of almost 3 is also a late talker and speech therapy on its own didn't really work in the beginning so he is now attending occupational therapy also and is in pre-school to get exposure to other kids - all this combined is really making a difference finally. Because you mention that his speech is not consistent, have you asked your speech therapist about 'CAS Childhood Apraxia of speech'? maybe he isn't talking cause he 'can't' and has to be taught how?...
