Late-talker Accents


In the late-talker community, we often talk about our kids “accents.” Adults who were late-talkers often say that people ask them “Hey, where are you from?” after trying to pinpoint the origination of a soft “R” or something. A lot of them say, “People ask me if I’m from New England all the time!” I wonder if Elias’ accent will stick with him or fade away…

This is just a video I took in the car this morning (don’t judge) because I had to capture Elias singing the alphabet for some friends who also have kids who are late-talkers or have Apraxia. It gives a great sampling of all of his articulation issues, and successes! 🙂
