My 3-year-old only says eight words
Q:
A: My 3-year daughter only says eight words clearly. She doesn’t try to talk in complete sentences. From about 6 to 14 months she had constant ear infections and was behind in achieving many tasks. She no longer has ear infections, and she follows instructions. I always talk to her and tell her what we’re doing, and I try to ask her questions to get her to respond, but she just grunts and babbles. I have no idea what to do.
