hi Madhu Prasad! yes i do understand your worry! some children take time in learning to form sentences and from there on carrying it fwd to framing and saying 2-3 sentences together, followed by making a story. Madhu u could make reading bedtime story a ritual. also talk a lot with him. when he comes back home and is in a mood to talk , u could ask him how his day at school had been, what all he studied and so on.. appreciate him for genuine efforts . make it a regular practice at home, to ask questions and don't take yes or no or gestures as answers. help him elaborate. as far as not chewing food is concerned, u could serve him food on dining table with others. give him a time limit of 20-25 minutes to finish as much as he wants. make meal time Happy family time. show him how u chew food and remind him to chew without scolding. also if he finishes within the time limit, praise him with a smiley. hope this helps!
