He is doing great. Talking up a storm. Very social and happy. No autism diagnosis. He's stubborn and throws lots of fits, but I think a strong will is a wonderful thing. He is currently having lots of fun playing learning games on his leappad tablet. He also loves watching The Muppets Mahna Mahna video online and running around. Thank you for your support!View Thread
Talking up a storm at 3.5 years. He started doing some talking at 2 years (not much) and then his language exploded at 2.5 years, and has progressed ever since. He is not behind in speech or social skills and is doing great. Super smart and articulate. Also very, very stubborn and demanding. Tantrums galore.
He liked watching Leapfrog Numberland and Phonics Farm on Netflix. He started saying and reading numbers and letters before almost anything else.
I would not worry. I think at some point his language will catch up really quickly. My doctor said that, with boys, not talking at 20 months was common. Slight speech delay. He should catch right up. Doc also said all the other behaviors were normal for his age. He'll probably be a handful discipline wise in the future.
Talk to your doctor about everything at the year checkup and they should ease your mind. View Thread
