lately i've been wondering if ds1 might have apraxia of speech. he will be two at the end of the month and still doesn't really talk much at all. he babbles constantly and can make all kinds of sounds independently, but not always on command and he seems to have trouble putting them together to make actual words. every once in awhile out of the blue he will say a word or even a phrase. like the other night when i was laying him down to go to bed and i said "i love you" he said "love you too" clear as day like he had said it a thousand times before but he hasn't come anywhere close to being able to repeat it even in part since then. he's very bright and very social and understands pretty much everything that i say unless i'm talking in some huge run-on sentence or something so i really don't think it's a hearing problem or that he's on 'the spectrum'. so i've been trying to do a little research and i'm wondering if maybe it is developmental apraxia of speech? is anyone familiar with this?
