Hi everyone.. I just have afew concerns about DDs speech and was wondering if others parents/ child health nurses (if there are any on bubhub) could give me an idea if i should go to a speech pathologist..
DD has just turned 2. At 12months she roughly said 5 words clearly...since than her Vocabulary has been of roughly 20 odd words...she doesnot speak in sentences and word joining she says "whats that" and "where is it" both not very clearly.
She understands everything that i tell her ..like if i ask her to sit on the chair or get the towel..etc..she will do that..she will converse with you in her baby babbling and occasionally will say one of the words she knows ..
shes very friendly..loves kids..
loves to read..she'll sit with her books and read to herself.. I do activities with her also and point out things to her..
my child health nurse said that at 2 she should have a vocabulary of nearly 45-50 words and be able to join words to form sentences..
should i get an appointment with speech pathologist?? Any advise will be appreciated!!
