    My DS is starting daycare in Jan. He'll be 28 months. Speak to the daycare about what type of program they can do for him as he has been diagnosed ask about the Inclusion Support Subsidy that they can get an extra teacher for the days he is there. Being around other talkers could be good for him.

    Would he eligible for speech delay? (He has no other development issues, hearing impairments or autism)

    My DS is 6 now but had a severe speech delay, he simply didn't talk and this affected his ability to comprehend the world and communicate.

    He started ST when he was just over 3 and had a vocab at the time of about 20 words. In the early days some of the things I found helpful were singing Old MacDonald and letting him do the animal noises (animal noises count as words). The ST also played a game with him where she blew bubbles and he had to say "pop" before they could start to pop the bubbles with their fingers. She had to show him a couple of times and he would only say the sound "p" but that's ok, the end of the word would come in time.

    STs can be expensive but if they qualify you can get public funded ST.

    The director of the daycare where DS is going to go thinks so. I have already signed the forms for the application. DS is indigenous though, not sure if that makes a difference.
