Have you talked to your pediatrician yet? Because that would be a good place to start, in order to make sure that there aren't any physical issues with his ability to speak.

After that appointment, your pediatrician will probably want to have your son evaluated for developmental issues that could delay his speech. This type of evaluation is usually really fun for kids, because they get to play games while the developmental psychologist (or whoever is doing the evaluation) takes notes and interacts with your son.

They will then be able to determine if your son needs individualized help, which will also be in the guise of games and 'playing.' Your son is still really young, and the sooner that this intervention takes place, the sooner he will talk, play nicely with others and interact with kids and adults without licking them.

Please make sure that he is properly evaluated soon, because definitely the sooner this happens, the quicker--and easier--it will be for him to start to learn how to talk and interact well with others.
