Just remember, there are kids who never go to school until kindergarten. Those kids don't usually know any of that stuff. As long as he can do basic things on his own when he starts school like eating, going to the bathroom, and playing well with others he should be fine. You should still talk to his pediatrician for peace of mind.

Could be a speech delay. Talk to his ped. They could tell you more. My son has a speech delay. The sooner you get him help the better.

Here is the developmental checklist for 3 year olds from the CDC via the following website:

If you are concerned that he is behind, don't be afraid to speak to his pediatrician about your concerns and ask for him to be evaluated by a proper specialist.
