I'm concerned about DS speech delay. All of the articles say he should be saying 50+ words and putting short 2-word sentences together... He understands everything we say... and communicates back with us (baby sign language, shaking his head, gesturing, noises like "choo choo" for train and animal sounds when he's referring to those things... and some words)... At his 2 year checkup, the doctor said communication wasn't an issue... she saw that he understood everything I said and was able to communicate back to me, but just not in words.
It's just so frustrating because when we try to get him to work on saying a word, he just looks at us and says "Yah-yah"... I hear him say words when he's playing or when Sesame Street says a word... but then he won't say it again.
Has anyone else experienced this?
