my 25 months daughter has hardly 20 words in her dictionary. She doesn't express herself through words but understands most of my commands. If she wants water , she would bring a glass or if she is hungry , she will will bring Box or jar. I can't take Decision to join back office or send her to daycare until she learns to speak . please give ideas to make her learn to speak. I tried sitting with her and repeating words but she speaks all wrong.

By solid food I mean normal solids that we give babies of this age like cooked rice with vegetables, daal kichdi, chapatti Idli, dosa without mashing all these.

Hi Arika just sharing some inputs from my mom who was a retired teacher and had helped many kids with similar problems while running a play school and day care successfully for 12 years. Apart from interacting with other kids and elders, she used to say that giving proper solid food to children also helped in developing their cheek muscles which went a long way in helping them to speak well. And she used to insist on giving a teaspoonful of the meal at a time, so that the child's mouth was full but comfortable enough to chew. Try this, hope this works.

my son is 25 months but still hardly speaks only few words though he undstands everything ...hoping he would start talking soon, as we have already enrolled him in school which starts in april.... it's quite true once they start interacting with more. people outside they would develop their language

hello arika no need to worry at all they speaks when they mix up with more people.. now a days our babies are staying only with their parents that's why they are talking late.. once she start going to school you can see the change and difference she will speak.. keep talking with her let she say wrong you don't worry they are intelligent ..

if her other social interactions are normal , she is playing and mixing well with other kids, interacting properly, this speech delay is acceptable. she will start to make sentences soon. but make sure all family members use one language at a time, so that she does not have language confusion, once she starts speaking, she will up other languages too. it's too early to interven now.

hey arika first of all do not take tention so much. my daughter is two years old and she does not speak. only papa n mama that is it. she underatands everything. everyone says dont worry some kids talk late. but still i am worried. i have started with kids alphabet book and once she said baa to a ball. i am trying. there are studies saying it is normal if baby is hearing you. keep practising and you can go for speech therapy also if available. but dont force your child. one day they will talk talk n talk. stay positive.
