Hello everyone, I am new to this and in need of advise. My Daughter Kristen will be 2 in 5 days and is REFUSING to talk! I have tried everything. She loves music so I tried recording myself singing the alphabets and different words. I have tried to read stories in a sing song and nothing is working. She does not like to sit and watch T.V. programs so I dont force her to do so but I am at my wits end on getting her to communicate with me. I know she can do it because a couple of words have slipped out before but when I try to get her to repeat them, she sucks her teeth, rolls her eyes, makes weird noises or wave me off. But when she wants something and I dont know what it is, she goes crazy and I get frustrated. Why wont she just say a couple of words and what can I do to encourage speech?? please help!
