Momma to DD (12/04) and DS (11/09) .
I survived 16 mos! Ask me about breastfeeding a baby with posterior tongue tie, high palate, and weak oral motor skills- whew!
i would not be concerned unless it was affecting your life. meaning he wasnt able to ask for orange juice in a way that you would understand. he is still pretty new to speaking if he has been collecting words in the last 6 months. dd didnt speak in sentences or string words together long enough for one thought till a year and a half after she started talking.
The only thing that comes to mind. You say that your husband and yourself have poorer communication skills... do you read a lot to him? If that's the case he's at least can get proper sentence formation from books (and even if you have good communication skills I've noticed that some books include sentences forms that I would not normally use so it gives DD a wider range of sentences to hear).
it is sad thought that he is being treated so shabbily by his playmates. it is so sad that children learn so young that if you dont fit the box they are up for teasing.
perhaps i think instead of communicating you want him to be assertive. that again is a personality trait.
does your son get upset by their behaviour? does he notice?
here's a story. my dd's bf with red hair totally ignores bullies or anyone that teases him. has since he was little. it isnt that he is scared or upset. he really doesnt care. dd on the other hand is a fire cracker and will voice her opinion. in fact she goes and 'defends' him if the teasing happens in front of her. its funny to see he completely ignores the other child, while my dd chases that child all over the playground.
