My 2.5 year old DS does not talk much. I wasn't concerned for a long time because my MIL said DH didn't say even one word until after he was 2. And he has said words but he seems to say them once and then we never hear them again other than mum, no and want.
I read to him, I always explain to him what's going on. What I am doing and what he is doing but he just doesn't seem to talk much. I don't know if it's a problem or he's just being stubborn (I think the stubborn because he does say words then we never hear it again). He just doesn't seem interested in talking or listening really. I don't think it's a hearing problem because I have tested that myself but he is having a hearing test next week.
I am concerned now because his 1.5 year old twin brothers are talking a lot more than him.
Anyone have any suggestions for things I could try that might encourage him to talk and keep on talking.
