Hi everyone, I have two boys 4 and 2 they both have problems with speech and social play. My two year old barely makes any noise at all unless he's yelling or screaming. I am working with infants and toddlers in my area to try to get ideas to help grow my youngest's vocabulary and get him engaging in toys but the process is not going smoothly. My older boy is in a special education preschool where he gets speech and OT and we have them both going to private speech once a week. I'm scared, not because I'd love them any less if there was a problem but I feel like I'm missing a piece of the puzzle like I'm just out of reach of helping. Some times I think it's my fault genetically we have a lot of autism in my family or maybe I did something while I was pregnant that gave them this disadvantage either way I feel really guilty. I'm hoping to find ideas to help the boys develop and other people dealing with global delays.
