To the OP, I wouldn't worry too much for another couple of months, either.
To everyone else: I don't come here often, my kids are a bit old and when I do I always say the same thing...call your local public school for any developmental concerns. I think pedi's are pretty useless at this. Your school will hook you up with Early Intervention. (If you come here often and are thinking Hmm, I just read this somewhere, it's cause I find myself being repetative, but this program is worth it!). In Massachusetts, it's called, say it with me now, R.E.A.C.H.
While it's funded by the gov't, it's one group that rocks! They come to your house for free, cause kids ar 3 learn better at home, and often have centers for kids to go to for even more help. (At three yo your public school is leagally responsible to help your child, evaluate them, offer services and you can homeschool and still get help! I did)
The woman who came to our house was an angel! She'd sit and have a tea party with us, all 3 girls, though she was only suppposed to come for one then. She brought puzzles and toys and was bright and sunny and cheerful! I loved it!
When my daughter turned 3, and graduated, she hand made her a beautiful raggedy Ann doll, fully clothed.
Then the others were diagnosed and we got her back! Woohoo.
Now my cousin never spoke til she was 3 and then talked in full sentences. (If I had a nickel for everytime my mother told me that!) However, my daughter didn't say anything correctly. At two 1/2 she said Mumby (mummy), Da, Mim (Mindy), Gee or bless the poor kid, Gee-boy(Sean) (that stuck for years, and he never complained, and all 3 younger ones used it. ). All animals, the oxen up town, the dog and cats, salamanders and butterflys, etc, were ducks. No matter how hard we tried, they stayed ducks, til she was about 6. Anything she named, even if two salamanders at time, our cat, her dolls, were Joe. Or, Joe and Joe. Except she said Doe, and we knew what she meant.
It's important to note if a child learns to make new sounds. Usually they start with Da and work from there. Not always. They should occasioanlly add a sound, Ma, wassat, NO, out, expanding their range of sounds not just words.
By 18 months, I'd get a kid evaluated if it wasn't happening. Hearing can be done before that, anytime, if you are concerend about that. (do they turn to a sound, respond to their name?)
Just so everyone knows, kids do not all just learn in their own good time. My daughters do have a disability that will always be with them, though we don't know why. My now 16dd couldn't be understood by teachers or other kids til 3rd grade! Not even to use the bathroom. And she loved school, begged to go!
The 14 yo's still speak 'funny' as they say. The youngest told me yesterday, "Sometimes I say I have a Boston accent, and they don't know. Other times I say I have a speech impediment. Well, I try
to say it, but I can't get it out, and then they know."
And she couldn't care less. Love her or leave her.
So, as I wander off and leave you people in peace, remember, local schools, early intervention, little known gem that your taxes already pay for.
