    I am going through this right now. My son is 6 and is in 1st grade now, and he had a speech therapist when he was 4 in Kindergarten and my daughter gets a visit in her pre-k class. Not sure why they had the delay my husband, and I think it was just that we understood them and completely forgot about the rest of the world.

      Both of my younger ones are having issues with speech. My two year old finally started really talking at about 20 months. My 14 and a half month old still only says mama and dada.

        @Celeste,Mandi,Meg and Amanda : Sorry the late reply, My son Jonathan is now 4 years and 7 months years old and he is still seeing his speech therapist twice a week. although he has improved a lot in his communication but my hubby and me are planning to stop the therapy cause for us the cost is quite expensive.
        the question is how does moms guide the children with delay speech without any therapy?
        I don't want to make any mistake by stopping the therapy and later I regret it cause my son didn't get any improvement :(

        I really don't know about older children. I do know that my 6 year old is in kindergarten and a lot of her classmates are in a school speech program. I also don't know what state you live in, but here in Michigan, there is an early on program in which a therapist comes to the house for evaluation for free. It is a government funded program.

        I am so sorry. I now truly know how blessed I am to live in the US. Maybe there are some resources on the internet that will help.
