developmental delays

My daughter is 3 yes old, and is not I speaking at the level a child her age should. She is just now learning how to say more words even though she has trouble pronoucing them. I feel its a start since she was only saying a couple of words to start. My question is does anyone know rather or not taking anti-epileptic medication during pregnancy can cause a child to have developmental delays?

If your doctor feared the anti-epileptic medication could or would harm your unborn fetus, I would hope they would stop the medication.

If you are concerned about developmental delays, seek the opinion of your pediatrician where they can evaluate your daughters progress. In the meantime, talk with her a lot. Read to her constantly. Ask her if she wants milk or whatever and try to het her to use words instead of pointing or whatever she does. Don't speak for her. Let her talk.
