Three year old can't talk.

Postby Jerlene » August 5th, 2012, 2:38 am

My mom owns a child care and I help her. Her first kid was a one year old who couldn't talk. Not too bad. That's not abnormal. We had him till her was three and he still couldn't talk. When I say he can't talk I mean he can't say ANY words. He just mumbles and makes random noises. He doesn't even try. If you try to teach him to say a word he'll either walk away or cry and throw a tantrum.

Anyone have experience with this? Any solutions to the talking?

I do not have experience with this, but it could be a sign of autism. Your mother may want to suggest to have him checked to see if he is on the autism spectrum.

It is unusual for a 3 year old not to talk. I would suggest having the child checked out just to be sure that nothing was wrong with him.

It is unusual for a 3-year-old not to talk. But are you sure the reason the child is not talking isn't just that he is shy? Some children talk a lot at home with their parents but might clam up around other people.
