hello I have a question. I have a 3 year older girl who is delayed in speech. she says lots of things that I understand, but there are lots of things that I don't understand and I feel so bad. she had been to speech therapy before and I don't feel like it was working; it seemed more like play therapy. she's been tested for autism and that got ruled out. she also is an extremely picky eater. she won't eat any vegetables, fruit, any of the boost, ensure kind of drinks, and no meat. she won't even try any of them, and I'm trying to figure out is this normal? please help

no worries Jamie can Lloyd ! she would come around soon. just try out the suggested tips given in the blog. these might come in handy.. for some letters that she find difficult to speak, u could make her do some tongue and breathing exercises which would help her in clear speech.. for this please take the help of another speech therapist and learn yourself and make her practice at home. here is another blog u would find useful. https://www.parentune.com/parent-blog/speech-disorder-and-stuttering-in-children/200?ptref=sa0l0000j66005k

Thank you so my Aesha, I appreciate the response. she doesn't talk fast, but I've also noticed there a lot of letters she has a hard time saying especially S's. The picky eater thing bothers me because I'm thinking she's starving, or what if when she goes to daycare she don't eat.

hi Jamie can Lloyd ! does she speak really fast?as that could also be the reason for having incoherent speech. when u speak to her please make sure, u r slow,clear, have a coherent speech.. also motivate her to speak slow ,and praise her and reward her with star or smiley stickers when she speaks clearly.. over a period of time u would notice change. some children are picky eaters.. this is normal. here is a blog which might come to yr rescue. https://www.parentune.com/parent-blog/feeding-problems-8-ways-to-deal-with-a-fussy-eater/806?ptref=sa0l0000j6600me
