Hi, my 3.5 year old son does not talks though he is fond of music and loves to sing songs. He listens to the stories I tell and anticipates what is coming next when I am telling a familiar story. He even says the next line sometimes. He started babbling at right age. He loved poems and both me and hubby would share poems with him each day...now he knows 20-30 poems in three different languages....he also knows several songs. ..he is able to pronounce difficult words very clearly which most children in his age may not be able to........his expression, eye contact and overall non-verbal communication is all fine: hence autism is not the case. But he does not initiates a conversation: when he wants something he just points at those things or leads us to refrigerator when he wants juice/ water etc. similarly he also manages to communicate that he needs to use wash room. He also follows our simple instructions...when we ask him to throw something in dustbin or to switch on the lights: he does it. But he never speaks to communicate his feelings/ his needs....We had always been very conscious about his needs and have also pampered him a lot....We use three languages at home and thus thought it may have caused the delay in talking ...we have just started sending him to a play school...before this he did not have many opportunities to play with other kids
