Common Questions and Answers about Speech development of a 3 year old


Avatar m tn we have a speech and language disorder forum on Med Help you may also find some good answers there .
Avatar m tn My daughter just turned 3 a few weeks ago. While she typically talks in 4-5 word sentences and displays an average vocabulary, I think she is struggling with some comprehension issues. If asked a question she doesn't know the answer to, she will automatically answer yes as opposed to thinking about it or responding with ''I don't know.'' I think she knows she's supposed to have an answer, but doesn't know what to do when she doesn't get what you are saying.
Avatar n tn I have a daughter who is 3 years old. She has delayed speech and is still only sounding one words. She is still in nappies and is unaware of when she goes to the toilet. Mostly she is a happy child. She did notbegin to walk until she was nearly 2 years old and even now she is sometimes unsteady on her feet. Communication is difficult, if she is asked a question she can appear to look at you with a blank stare.
Avatar n tn My daughter is three and a half years old and she barely talks. She'll say "juice" "thanks" and a bunch of other things and has a few phrases like "what happened?", but she isn't talking in sentences. I've tried many things like flash cards (she blazes right through them) and making her repeat one word at a time to make a complete sentence and basically encouraging her to talk as much as possible.
Avatar n tn t think conversationally he is up to par for a four year old. I am thinking of putting him in speech therapy to see if this will help his social and conversating skills. If you ask him questions, most of the time he can answer you. I am just worried and want him to do well in school when he starts in August 2010. Do you think speech therapy will benefit him?

Avatar n tn My daughter made up her own language. She can say several English words, but the rest is in her own words. We were advised that she has apraxia of speech. Seek help from a speech therapist familiar with different dx's.
Avatar f tn Sounds like normal speech development of a 4-year-old to me. We don't touch /R/ in the school system until they're 8 years old (I'm in FL). Just model it correctly when she makes a mistake. Don't "correct" her everytime...just say the word back to her and rephrase what she said. If she says "my favorite color is papo," say "your favorite color is pURple?" That's mine too." You're doing fine. Don't be concerned yet....
Avatar n tn I have a 4 1/2 year old boy whom I keep in Childcare. He can follow 2 directions at a time when we are doing it for learning. Has trouble w/ 3 directions--have to repeat or tell him again. Also has trouble w/ comprehension. I will ask him a question:i.e....did you wash your hands...and he will give me a look like he doesnt' understand the question and say, "uh...".
500419 tn?1220124743 Hi I have a 3 year old son who only put 2-3words together to talk. I took him to an ENT because I thought it was because of his hearing Well to make a long story short.
Avatar n tn Hm. sometimes common refers to how often something happens in a particular age group. And there are MANY things to look into when trying to understand the quirks of a 3 year old and 'nothing to worry about' is a stretch. She is talking about thinking skills when she refers to common sense . . . I still suggest you visit a developmental pediatrician. I would rule out Turner's syndrome. And some of the other things you speak of, please let me know what you think of my above post.
Avatar f tn My oldest nephew only said 3 words (not exaggerating) at the age of 3... everyone told my sister he was slow and made her feel terrible... one day he woke up talking like an adult and is now a very intelligent 15 year old who talks constantly...
709940 tn?1231900307 I have a 3 1/2 year old son who has very odd behaviors. He rocks constantly, lines up his toys and other objects, he does not play with with any children at all, not even his sisters. He is also extremely violent. He does make eye contact most of the time and his speech is excellent. He does not understand he, she, what, why or how and everything is I don't know.
Avatar n tn Hi. He actually sounds like a bright 3 year old! I think he is going to be fine based on what you have written here. Here are some additional questions for you. How is his overall motor development? Was he a late or early walker, for example? How are his fine motor skills? Things like tongs or scissors, for example. How are his social skills? He should be just leaving the parallel play stage where he plays along a side a child doing his own thing. Is interaction starting to happen.
Avatar m tn My son has a speech and language disorder, and has the understanding of a 2.5 year old. I suggest you take your son to the doctors, or go and see a speech therapist. Maybe he's just a slow learner. He will need help so see a speech therapist.
Avatar n tn My son will turn 3 in April and has a speech delay. He takes my hand to take the desired objects but doesn't point at them. He's been seeing a speech therapist for three months but the progress is too slow. He knows the tunes of the songs but babbles the words. He knows three to four words and doesn't always answer or looks when we call his name. He plays with his 5 yr old sister but not always. Can you help me please? Thankyou!
Avatar n tn Hi, I have a 6 year old soon to be seven and I am running out of options here in brazil. My son doesnt talk and never had. The doctors say he is delayed, but when does the speech stop being delayed? He is a smart boy he understands everything in Two languages of course his portugese is better then his english because he was raised here. I was reading about the wolf- Hirschhorn syndrome..
Avatar f tn It is hard to check hearing at that age because it assumes cooperation which lets face it most three year olds can sit for a hearing test, I would follow up with the pediatrician and the audiologist, the pediatriacian can give you a referal for a speech language assessment and they can help you determine it language is a problem or not.
