    This is an excellent web site !

    You should receive an award for your efforts in explaining and compiling the complex information involved with toddlers’ speech difficulties. The interactivity of the web site offer very good insight into other parents’ related problems as well.

    I am very concerned for my 23 month old grandson, he has very few words, he will say a word for a while then stops. He is easily distracted,h doesn’t give strangers alot of attn. or eye contact. After a little while he will hug them, or bring them toys. To get our attn he is grabbing our hands and taking us to what he wants, or to play. When he started teething, he got an ear infection, & upper resp. inf., and this lead to thrush from antibiotics. This is when we noticed everything was not progressing. His eating habits of course were effected, and now is very picky. I work with special needs children, which I think makes me look for things/and or over look as a Grandmother… We have contacted Birth to three, waiting for an eval. Should we have hearing checked before the evaluation? We live a few hours away & would love to have a consultation!!
    Thank you for your time!
