When did your kids start talking? Were they delayed or did they talk around the time they should?

Angie did not talk until she was about 2 and 1/2 and Brandon said a few words at 2 and 1/2 but didn't really start talking well until he was close to three.

My son probably says about 50 words, he will be 3 in September. The rest of what he says sounds like babble.

That is how Brandon was and for that matter Angie was closer to three before she had a good vocabulary.

My LD daughter wasn't talking very much when she was 2 1/2, she is a twin and they both had frequent ear infections. They also twin talked. My pediatrician had me put them in preschool when they turned 3, it forced my son into talking more and by the time of the end of the school year he was on par with the rest of the children. While she did do better, she was no where close to her brother. I and her siblings were about the only ones that could understand the little she did speak. My husband could understand her up to a point.

My sister and I are twins so I know what you mean by twin talk. Teresa and I were very shy when we were little and it took a while to grow out of that. I remember I had a really hard time adjusting at first in school because they put us in separate classrooms.

Elliot is 6 and he can talk but it is only understandable to people who know him well. People can understand his key words but not his full sentences.

His brother can understand everything he says somehow. It is really quite amazing.

Ross started talking well at the age of 7.

I've been thinking, when I first saw a big difference in Liz, it was 3 years ago, when she was 8. She had done Fast ForWord over summer break, it really helped her phonemic awareness. It's pretty expensive though.

When she was in 5, one of my older daughter's friends asked Liz what she wanted to be when she grew up. She said, "a cow." There would be other things she would say that would come from left field.

Her vocabulary actually increased after that, I couldn't understand the exact reason why. The school board offered a 6 week course for ESE parents to help their children with reading. It was amazing, one thing we learned that once phonemic awareness is learned, a child's vocabulary will increase. She said that the words are in a child's mind, but there is no way to express it. Thus, the -I want to be a cow when I grow up.

What she says now is that she wants to be a veterinarian. Whether that ever happens remains to be seen, but the point is that she loves animals, veterinarian was not part of her vocabulary at the time. She knew it, she just couldn't express it.
