    Hello,


    We enlisted the help of a speech therapist for our son. He wasn't exhibiting the same behavior as your child, but he was delayed in speaking. Having an expert come in and give us strategies was great.

    One thing that really helped was using "baby sign language" while also talking with him. The way it was explained to us was that the speech center of the brain was different than the hearing center, so by using gestures to express words, that also exercise the speech center and therefor would help verbal expression as well.

    Our son definitely blossomed and it was like the flood gates opening.

    We spoke with our pediatrician on how to get a speech therapist.

    Best of luck and keep working at it!
