I didn't have any concerns until I took my son to the ENT due to multiple ear infections. The nurse and the doctor made it sound like they were concerned because he was not saying more words. He's currently saying about 15-20 words but understands more than what he says, imitates, repeats and follows one step directions. I believe he's developing age-appropriately but was wondering what other average 18 year olds are doing.
