Right Age for speaking
Created by Updated on Jun 11, 2013
My daughter who 2yrs old is nunable to talk fluently and complete a sentence . She is able to Communicate through single words though. Am worried since my elder daughter started talking full sentences while she was just a year old. Should i wait till she joins pre- school or is it the right time to consult a doctor for Speech therapy. Pl suggest.

Well each child is different. So is their age of reaching milestones. well I believe as long as she is able to communicate n express herself it shd be fine. U shd help her communicate by completing sentences. Try to complete her one words with simple sentences, motivate her n praise her as often as possible.

I second Shikha. The pace with which children grow and develop is different. However, there are few things which are common, and if not achieved , gets parent worried. In your child's case, I don't think you need to consider an option to going to the speech therapist at this stage as she speaks monosyllables. We need to give our children more stimulus and chances wherein they can listen. Read story books as often as you can , talk to them a lot, use words which they need in order to communicate, switch on to channels which broadcast informative , educative and yet entertaining programmes(for eg. Baby tv) for children of their age. And then you would see a ball rolling. Listening always brings about speaking. It will be a matter of few months that you would see your daughter speaking . Try, and after that also if you feel you need to go to a specialist, go ahead. Nothing wrong in it. Do it with a smile, and I am sure it will happen :).
