My best friend has a 2.5 year old girl and this child makes very little sense....she is a constant babbler and even mom can barely understand anything she says. The kid can hear just fine and other than being a little clingy and occasionally aggressive seems pretty normal. She thinks something is wrong with her and I don't know what to tell her. She doesn't want to get her tested just because she's scared of the possible outcome, but I honestly don't know what kind of outcome she thinks she may get!
She asks for my opinion and personally I think she's just taking a little longer to get up to par and a little hard work would get her back to snuff, but I'm not the person to ask about this...so now I'm asking you ladies...do you have some babblers out there??? How clear are your kids and how many words do they know? I am wondering if part of her fear is that, although her daughter is 2.5, she's HUGE and is as tall as my 3.5 year old and wears 4T clothes (she's not fat, just big) and that just by looking at a girl that size you would think she's talking as well as kids that are also her size like my daughter who's a full year older.
Thanks for your help up front, I don't know if there's anything wrong with this kid or what to tell her...having some examples would give me a better handle on if her fears are justified or not!!
