Thanku Debashree for the boosting words. my pediatrician told to totally cut down his screen time and allow him to play more with other kids. he says he finds it easier to do actions than to speak. even I heard the same comments from his prekg teacher. He asked me no to respond to his actions, but if I do it he gets irritated and angry when ever i insist on him to say or utter the word . Am being positive and patient to maximum, but people at home and others keep asking y has he started talking , its high time so that makes bothered.

Hello Swati, if your child can utter "apple" , be sure that there is no major problem in his speech. BUT, it is true that his vocabulary has only one meaningful word... "apple". Though we all know and agree with the pediatricians that all children are different and some of them really take time in developing speaking skill... however, l strongly feel that you should consult a good pediatrician mentioning your concern regarding this matter. If your child's pediatrician advised you to visit a speech therapist.. please go for it. Don't worry, you are not alone... we all are with you.

Hello Palak, all children are different. Some learn to talk very fast... some learn walking. My son is 2 years old and his vocabulary consists of only 15 to 20 meaningful words. Please don't worry. My child's pediatrician told me that if more than one language is exposed to a child... delayed speech development can take place. Nowadays children watch cartoons and rhymes in English, get instructions from their parents in mother tongue and listen music in Hindi.. so it happens to many children. What you can do... 1) encourage him to talk.. when he will show you some gesture.. you take the object with your hand and utter the name clearly 2) buy some good, colourful picture study books.. and show the pictures pointing finger at them and read out the names clearly asking your child to repeat them. 3) start teaching him rhymes with actions 4) praise him and hug him for his efforts . BUT, IF YOUR CHILD DOESN'T UTTER "MUMMY".. OR "MAA" ALSO..... IT IS BETTER TO CONSULT A GOOD PEDIATRICIAN AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
