Have difficulty imitating sounds?

Struggle to express wants and needs?

Struggle to get his/her thoughts down on paper?

Refuse to try new foods or have a significantly limited list of foods that he/she will eat?

Still drool after age 2?

Sound nasal?

Show frustration when trying to get words out?
