My son turned 2 in January and he is not talking at all. When you ask him to say things he shakes his head at you as if to say no. He babbles a lot and points to things and I tell him what they are but he does not say the same things I do. He says Mom and Dad and he can communicate that he wants a drink, or to eat or to go lay down, or to take a bath or even for a dirty diaper, but this is all without talking. I have been told that he may have a hearing problem because we talk to him all the time and he is not picking anything up. I am taking him to the Dr's tomorrow for his checkup and maybe they may be able to tell me if there is something wrong with him or if he is just learning sounds before words. Any advice would help a lot! Thanks in advance.
