My daughter is nearing three and babbles a lot. She goes for speech therapy but they have advised us to put her in play school so that she will be in the company of peers and will gradually learn to speak. But my mother is worried because she babbles a lot. Some people say she should not babble and it should not be encouraged. But I feel that it is her way of trying to talk or communicate. Am I right or wrong? Even regarding potty training, since she is unable to speak, training her is becoming difficult for us.

It would help if you talk to her like you would someone else. No baby talk at all. Encourage her to enunciate her words it will help her speech.Definitely do what the therapist suggests by getting her in a play school being around others her age will help her speech as well. Babbling is her way of talking yes but encouraging her to babble will not help her speech at first it is cute but for her to speak properly babbling will stunt her speech.
