Hi, my 5 year old has suddenly started saying "dabby" and "babby" instead of daddy and baddy.
I don't think he is doing it on purpose, and it has never happened before. Only happening the last couple of days.
Does anyone have any clues why, or what I can do to help.
I thought maybe a) hearing, or b)he reads well and maybe the learning to read process has somehow confused him, or more worryingly c) could it be some kind of verbal skills regression, as in ASD (maybe prematurely worrying!)
Thanks
