My son has cerebal palsy and speech delay he smashing his head in frustation or when can't get his own way would this make his CP worse?
Unlikely: Head banging is not limited to CP kids. In a way it is just an amplification of the early infant fussing. I've never heard or seen a head banger with a real head injury. This likely caught on when he noticed it grabbed your attention. If you ignore it (don't lock eyes), watching him out of peripheral vision, for safety, it should fade over time. Teaching some sign language may help with the frustration. ...Read more

19 month old speaks 15 words and many protowords, understands one step commands and 100 words. Tested, and is socially fine. Speech delay or normal?
Possibly delayed: At 19 months, one would expect a toddler to know 50-75 words, understand up to 200 and be able to follow a two step command.

Depends on situation: Most garbled speech in a 3yo has less to do with the tongue than on the manner the kid started using words. If the tip of the tongue can touch the top of the mouth & jut out past the lower teeth, it is unlikely a frenulotomy would be needed. If you contact the "child find " program in your location they should assess your childs speech & advise you on her needs. ...Read more
