How do I get my 2 year-old to talk more?

My little man just turned two and he doesn’t seem to be talking as much as the other kids his age that we know. The pediatrician said he’s a little behind. He speaks pretty often, just not in very long sentences. He mostly just says one or two words at a time. I’m going to start him in daycare this week, so hopefully being around other kids who are talking will help. Any advice for me on helping him talk a little more?

Daycare sounds like a wonderful idea! He’ll start making friends and soon enough he’ll come home everyday repeating everything all of the other kids were saying. 0 Likes

Something my wife and I did was narrate everything we did! “I’m going to make us breakfast now. Are you ready for breakfast? We’re going to have cereal and I’m going to have some orange juice and after breakfast we are going to…” I swear, I’ve never spoken so much in my life. But I think it helped a lot! Our toddler talks nonstop now. 0 Likes

Reading to your kiddo every night isn’t a bad idea! Nice for bonding, too! 0 Likes

Being around other kids at the daycare will be great for him to socialize and encourage him to speak more. I would sing songs to my little one and ask him to repeat after me all the time when he started talking. 0 Likes
