Join pediatric speech-language pathologist Laura Mize, M.S., CCC-SLP, founder of www.teachmetotalk.com as she answers this question from an SLP:

"I read all your materials and I am very familiar with your approach to therapy . I have a question with 1 child. He is 2 years old and understands everything but is not speaking. He is not apraxia and nothing major is going on. I've tried all your techniques especially verbal routines. Does it come to a point when it's personality based child doesn't feel need to talk or is babied by parents and doesn't want to talk?"

Do you already know what I'm going to say? If you're a long time listener, probably so!
