I'm starting to be concerned with DS's speech delay. He can only put two words together at a time right now (not including 'mama'). And strangers can only understand about half of what he says. Sometimes even I can't understand what he says! I feel a little crazy, because my parents don't seem too worried about it. And at his 3year wellness appointment, the doctor didn't even seem too concerned. He said that a speech therapist would just do with him what I do with him everyday. Like encouraging him to use his words and what not. But I think it's starting to affect him. He is definitely in his terrible 3s, but I think it's worse then it would be because, he can't express himself properly. I knew early on that he was behind in speech and I used to be okay with it. I used to tell people that it was the only part of him that was still a baby and now I feel so guilty for saying that! Do any of you have experience with this? Would speech therapy be worth it or is the doctor right? I know all kids develope at different rates, so is he just 'normal' behind or too much behind? TIA!
