dd is 30 mths has happily said nana all her eating life. (obv for banana)
Now she calls it nada
While I'm delighted that she can use two consonant sounds together so nicely, I am alarmed that she ahs stopped saying nana....
She has had some speech therapy but is thought to be coming along ok, is this fairly typical?
Yes I'm a little paranoid I know....
Piffle, I was answering to your post until I noticed that you mentioned that she has had some speech therapy so I guess more accurate info could be found in the Special Needs board. However, given the recent thread on SN boards use I would be more tempted to post this topic again under the B/D board but under a title like "reversing to bad pronunciation Xtime after speech therapy" to see if somebody with more experience in the topic is around.
From my own experience, DS (25m) has stoped saying some words he said more or less correctly but it seems that it is because he is processing the information slightly different and sometimes he made some strange mix ups. For example he used to say clock and reoj (reloj=clock in spanish), and now he only uses "cloj", Moon and Luna have become Moona and so on. HE has been unable to learn the word arriba (up) even when I have been repeating it every time we climb the stairs, I pick him up, etc since 3-4 months ago, but in general I think he is doing OK. I guess that I would wait to see if other alarming signs appear before too worried.
piffle, I'm pretty sure both mine did this. I thought it was just them trying to get a better version, kind of thing. It sounds worse to us, but it's their way of developing things and trying them out. I honestly think it's OK
ds is 26 months old and has gone from calling a helicopter a "copter" to "helicopter" and has now decided it's called a "hat". He says it with a big smile on his face, so I think he knows it's not right.
Just keep on agreeing with her that it's a "banana".
I was a bit eeeks about posting on SN, although dd does have Noonan syndrome - it is mild and this is not particularly relevant to her language (we are told).She tested as age appropriate at last check up with speech therapists.
Thx for the replies, I was having one of those paranoid days...
Not so important words like hepiclopter and hopspital started wrong, and have become correct.
Very important words (in his world you can't get more important than banana and elephant) have gone through many stages. He started with nana, but has been through many different versions. He's currently on banana! But elephant he has got correct in the past, or used ellie etc., but at the moment he insists on efelant. Just an observation, and I don't know what it means!
