My 20-month-old son grunts for everything. I have tried to encourage him to talk using techniques you suggested in the article “From Babbling to Talking,” but he seems to get frustrated and upset. I wonder if it’s too late for him to pick up on simple talking like most babies do. Has he lost all interest in it at this point? Or could there be a more serious problem?
