baby not talking
Created by Updated on Feb 21, 2019
my son is 2. 6yrs old. he doesn't have uvula(konda naluka). does it mean he is dumb and can't talk any more? he is gd at listening and grasping the things. but he is not at all talking even 2letter words. can someone help me please.

hi neelima! does he have cleft palate too? absence of uvula alone usually does not hinder speech.. though it may lead to production of more of nasal sound in speech. having said that please consult an expert and take an opinion in this regard. continue talking to him and help him speak using feel of hand on mouth . the earlier the intervention the better are the results..
