My girl is a little over 2 and was diagnosed a few months ago.
She went thru a long period of being undiagnosed snd was in a lot of pain. She’s feeling better physically now and was able to see a dr by a virtual appointment but what can I do to help her talk and communicate with me more? The dr was helpful but developmentally I want to make sure I’m doing the most to help her thrive. 
Sometimes she gets upset and will hurt herself. I don’t know if it’s the migraine that some celiac patients get or she’s frustrated. Thank you

She is only a bit over 2 so she can’t sneak gluten but at that age can’t tell me what’s wrong so she cries out or might want to hit herself in the face out of frustration to me more like “don’t you get what’s bothering me?”

If you are concerned about her verbal communication expression you can ask your Dr if she should be evaluated by a speech therapist. At two they are still emerging, but if your Dr hasn't mentioned a referral she is progressing as expected. Most public school district will evaluate them before or early in  kindergarten.

Since you are new to this be sure that her diet is 100% gluten-free, and avoid all cross-contamination if you or others in your family are not gluten-free. Gluten is a hidden ingredient in many foods, so it's important that you fully understand how to ensure her diet is not still causing her pain. This article may be helpful:

Check the CDC guidelines for child development.  My nephew was not verbal at two.  By three he was diagnosed with autism.  His PED never caught it, but the family did.  Early intervention is critical.

Carla20, 

I used Baby Sign Language with my son when he was little.  No problems, just he was very smart and trying to communicate and I got tired of trying to guess and asking twenty questions.  I was the one who was getting frustrated.  It really works!  You'll be amazed at how quickly kids grasp sign language.

There's tons of videos on YouTube.  Here's one to get you started.

 

There's tons more websites with more information.  

It really works and you will feel so much better giving your little one tools she can use that you will understand.
