I have a now 4 year old who was found to have a speech delay at 2 1/2 years old. His speech is improving slowly but improving. I just found out that my daughter who is 20 months may have a delay as well. In contrast to my son my bay girl is very independent at this age and not as affectionant. At 15 months she only said bye, hi, momma, daddy and thank you. But now I cant get her to say anything. Is she regressing? Are speech delays somewhat based on genes? Could she have more than a speech delay? My daughter is also very stubborn - she does things when she wants to do them and not when asked. Please help!
