My son will be 2 in June and he has not said any kind of words but mama or dada and that is barely. I have only heard him said those words only a couple of times. His peditrician did recommend a speach specialist at his last appointment some months back, but I was thinking wait and see if he will start to talk. Well nothing yet, so I'm going to see if he will talk a bit when his 2nd birthday comes along. He is babbling about like trying to have a conversation and thats it. He understands what we are telling him if we ask him questions to go do something or maybe point to an animal in a book, but other than that nothing.
I know every child is different, just wanted to see if anyone else has experienced this and have you waited to see if your child would talk on their own, or have them go to a speech therapist. Thanks.
