You could try apps? A lot of educational apps are targeted at children that are 3+ so you could try anything that has to do with reading or speaking. I have used Best Kids Songs and Stories with my now 5 year old and she loves it! I think that it has really helped with her English, speaking and reading.

Wow that's a tough one. My little boy is 23 months old and does not say a lot at all. His Grandmother suggested to me that he had autism - this just got my back straight up, particularly as I have a background in child development. So I guess what I am saying is you need to tread carefully. It's hard because a lot of the time a parent can understand what a child says when other people have difficulty understanding. It is also really hard for parents to consider that their little one might have any type of problem. I would suggest approaching the subject gently with her, speaking to a Child Health Nurse yourself about whether or not she feels he may have an issue and ask the Nurse for info and advice. Early intervention really is the best if there is a problem. As I said before my little fellow doesn't speak, the doctor told me to wait until he is 2 but I have booked him in for an assessment which the Health Clinic Nurse supports me doing 100%
