Hi! Sounds alot like my dd, but it got better at 34 months.
DD was maybe (and thats an iffy maybe) understood 10% of the time at 30 months. Her receptive was beyond where it should be, but she couldn't communicate. When she did say something, it was hard to understand and the order was always off.
Then, at 34 months, like magic, she had a word explosion. Thats not to say that we could understand everything......but understanding 50% made it possible for us to piece together the rest for the most part.
Now at 36 months, we (dh and me) can understand what she is saying about 70% of the time. There are still words in every sentance that we can't make out and her order of words is completely off, but at least we can understand more. A bonus is that her tantrums disappeared when we could understand her more at 34 months.
They were going to test dd at 3 years in order to get her involved in therapy, however, now she is within normal limits. She will probably not ever be super verbal.....more of a watcher and doer then a talker. We talk to her constantly and she is the only child, so statistically, she should be super verbal....but she is not. Maybe she will be an architect when she grows up. :-)
Good luck and I hope I helped in some way!
