How Tinur and her 2-year-7-month old son is conquering speech delay

Uncategorized Apr 17, 2020

In December 2019, my inbox flooded with emails from a mother named Tinur from Indonesia. I thought it would not be a good match for us to work together. Because my Bahasa Indonesia was less than functional and using English to communicate pose a huge challenge.

However, I was touched by her consistent action in teaching her child. She dug up my previous video lessons, and potty trained her son. Seeing that the advice was useful, she kept on asking and I kept on teaching. Whatever I asked of her, she implemented it with flying colors.

In the video, you will see the best parts of our training. There were countless moments when Tinur wanted to give up. Our communication would break down, and her son would scream and shout. As a coach, there wasn't much I could do on the sidelines. But thank God that things are panning out the way it did.

We're not there yet, this might be a success in the eyes of many parents around the world. There are still many, many things that we have to teach...

Want your speech delayed child to speak more? Start by talking less!

Uncategorized Apr 13, 2020

Ever think why your child performs better in a therapy room than at home? You're not alone. The primary reason why your child actually listens to therapists is that there isn't a lot "fluff" in their talking.

So to get your child ahead, you need to change your behavior if you're hoping for a change in your child's. You should stop all the unnecessary speech that your child ignores. Speech and language delayed children will generally ignore when you're talking too much. Simply because they don't understand and the content doesn't appeal to them.

And it's the same as any other human being. We've all been lost in a lecture that's too difficult. We doze off and play with our phones when our spouses talk to their friends about something that doesn't interest us. The way to solve this is to talk less and let your child be okay with having you around.

What is Speech Delay or Late talking?

Uncategorized Apr 09, 2020

Speech delay is a term that all parents dread to hear. Whether you heard it from your relatives, friends, your local doctor or from your child’s kindergarten teacher. It’s a term that is misunderstood and misused.


Most people use “Speech delay” to describe children who are not speaking at around 2-3 years old. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics in 2009, your 2-year-old should be able to communicate by:


  • Pointing to object or picture when it’s named for him
  • Recognizes names of familiar people, objects, and body parts
  • Says several single words (by fifteen to eighteen months)
  • Uses simple phrases (by eighteen to twenty-four months)
  • Uses two- to four-word sentences
  • Follows simple instructions
  • Repeats words overheard in conversation


This information might be outdated, but experience tells me that it is about correct....
