I know Im prob over paranoid but i thought id see what others opinions were. My 16month old DD really doesn't talk much. She always been quiet, which has prompted people to get her to see someone. Compared to a lot her age she doesn't say much. She says daddy, uh-oh, she has said star before, not really anymore. Shes not really consistent with words, uses them once or twice then doesn't want to say it again. She doesn't really say mummy. She tries to count to 1 2 3. We also have DOCS involved over some silly person that complained about something they had no idea about, not knowing the whole situation. Our DD looks up to her big brother who has autistic disorder and is non verbal, so she tend to copy the noises he makes. Im worried that DOCS is gona blow this out of proportion and gona make a big deal out of it. So is it ok she doesn't talk much. When did your LO's start talking. My sister told me my niece was the same as my DD at this age and now she can talk your head off. When should you start to get concerned? I just really want to assure DOCS that it is normal and that they don't need to make it a bigger deal then it really is. Any advice, tips would be much appreciated. TIA.
