    Yes with my 5th child. He was assessed than I did a short course with 3 other mums. He went 3 visits than we went back to have check up every few months for 2 years. All in the public system.

    Before looking into private speech therapy, I would wait and see where your DS is at when he is 2.

    Our DS had barely any words at 2. We enrolled him in a free course called Tiny Talkers, which was in a group setting with other toddlers run by a speech pathologist.

    The sp observed DS and recommended some one-on-one speech therapy sessions. A speech therapist through the public health system called me to arrange an appointment - I thanked her for calling and asked her to call my husband to arrange a time (as he cares for DS during the day). The woman did not end up calling my husband.

    Anyway, shortly after this, DS started using more and more words. All of his words are spoken very clearly. We were thrilled, and continue to marvel at his progress. The other day he counted to ten

    I think he just wasn't interested in speaking and he has developed in his own time. Maybe your DS will be the same?

    Yes, a little too much some days


    I have had 3 kids go through speech therapy for different issues. They are fantastic. They work with a lot more than just getting your kids to talk. I loved our speechie she changed our 3rd child life. With out her she wouldn't be the wonderful child she is today.
    My only regret is I did get 2nd child help sooner.
