My grandson is 2 and only speaks a couple words. He seems frustrated a lot. I think he wants to talk but just can't formulate the words. His pediatrician isn't concerned right now. But I am. His head was misshapen when he was born and it affected his neck muscles. He wore a helmet for several months which rounded out his head but I'm afraid it may have shifted something in his brain. My daughter can't do much about it w/o the doctors approval. I fear he will be "lost in the system" once he starts school, as your son seems to have been. It's tough being a parent! We ache for our children forever. Thanks for sharing your story.
