I had the same problem with my oldest child. The first thing is picture-word relationships. You have to make him understand that everything has a word. Start with something simple, say, a toy car. While he's playing with it, get his attention (good luck with that!) and say "car". If you don't think the message is getting across, place your finger right under your lips and say, "Look at me. Car. Car." Then point at the car and say "Car. Car." Go back and forth like that until you lose his attention. Once he masters that, move on. This is how the speech pathologists (that I paid a small fortune for) taught me how to do it, and there are times I still use it to this day. Also, something to think about, depending how old your son is, you may qualify for free aid from the state. Two of my sons were very preemie and qualified for free speech therapy. It's about time our tax dollars were put to good use, right? ;-) Seriously though, give that a try. If you have any other questions, I'll be happy to try to help you out!

Have tried talking to his doctor? They might refer you to a speech specailist that will can actually come to your house and evaluate him for free and if they feel he needs some help they can also offer you free services.
