Non verbal 34 months
My grandson is non verbal. He makes sounds but no words. He has seen a speech therapist about 5 months ago and she said not to worry yet as he will lead you to what he wants. Nursery are concerned and the health visitor suggested a referral to a paediatrician. Still waiting for this but are there any tips to encourage speech? He used to say mammy and daddy and yes and no but he has stopped altogether. I've made cards with photos of family and drinks etc and he will point when you ask for something but he doesn't talk at all.
