Want more real mum questions sent to you?


Ask your question
  • Just to reassure that all kids are different, some talk early some late. When son (now 14yrs old) was 2,5 yrs old he only spoke 5 words, he just started late nothing wrong with him. My 6yr old has Down syndrome and has a severe speech delay, she has speech therapy since she was 2yrs old or maybe even younger.

  • Talk him frequently take him in toddler preschool so he can socialize and communicate with his age fellows
