Maybe a small pet? This may get the child to start trying to talk. I had my daughter on the computer learning ABC's as early as a year old. We sang songs, read books very early. Perhaps she may have been delayed if l hadn't started early. Anyways, just keeping trying, don't give up. You are searching for answers which says how connected you are to your daughter.

Does your daughter have other ways to communicate with you? Does she seem to understand receptive language?

I would say just continue to keep up with the speech therapy and expose her to as much receptive language as possible (talk to her a lot).

Some of us developed language at a nonstandard pace, but eventually got around to being able to use language to communicate.

There are many different ways to communicate and although we are in a mostly verbal world, it could be very important to first capitalize on your daughters’ natural communication methods and skills. It is equally important that she does not begin to feel inferior or defective somehow because she is not speaking. A lack of confidence and anxiety can inhibit a child’s willingness to communicate verbally.

If she is able to learn to read, write or draw, this could be really helpful in establishing a line of communication with her.

I used flash cards with pics with my non verbal son....I got a for apple, b for ball but the fact that he was making a sound was progress. Then for ages there was no more progress. Then I discovered Carrie Clarks consonant deletion years later and wow!!!

I hope something there helps!!
