where r u up to in terms of assessing her speech? I know at my youngest son's 6-9 month check they said that they'd expect him to have around 50 words by 2yrs. I agree that if she isn't speaking it's probably time to get some professional help. It's always worth checking hearing, and there may be a degree of visual impairment as an issue. Is your little girl under a paediatrician, cos they can get the correct people involved ( VI team, speech and language etc.)?
My 3 yr old is non-verbal but more than that doesn't really know what she wants to say. the fact that your daughter knows what she want's to say but can't makes me think that with the right support she should be able to communicate brilliantly with you. hope you get some help soon.
