Speech Delays

Anyone else notice the alarming amount of speech delays in young children these days? The only kids I can compare my kids to are non-vaxed children (mine are non-vaxed as well). They are just so far ahead of all the other kids people tell me it's not fair to compare them. It's gotten to the point where we can identify if children have the normal amount of vaccines by how their speech and language is, or rather, how deficient it is. Just wondering if there have been any studies or anything on this.

I know we stopped vax'ing completely when my 2nd ended up with a severe speech disorder.

That's really interesting, did you notice an improvement after you stopped vaxing?

Well, the disorder didn't go away but the backslides that he was making right after getting a vax quit . . . .what progress he made he kept, so I guess that is an improvement of sorts.


I would be interested to know if there is any research done on this topic!

Yes, I agree, would love to see some studies. Sometimes it seems as if the autism debate takes up all the attention, when correlations between vaccines and speech delays would be something parents would want to know about too.

admitting any developmental or health problems due to vaccines is forbidden.

So don't hold your breath waiting for a study.

My grandchildren are mostly unvaccinated, neither had or had speech problems. And anything going wrong would have been spotted very early because their daddy is a speech language pathologist.

The girl started speaking very early and had quite complex sentence structure going by the time she was two.

Her brother started speaking much later, but he understood most language and just communicated with noises, facial expressions and gestures. Once he did start speaking he progressed quickly.

I'm a librarian. Most of the children I see coming into the library seem to be developing at a normal rate. I do not know who is fully vaccinated, who is partially vaccinated and who is unvaccinated. There is a lot of alternative health oriented people in my community, so I suspect a significant proportion of partial or completely unvaxed.
