Hi there moms! I have a 20 month old son who cannot talk yet. It worries me alot. Every day and night i keep on researching about the possible reasons of my son's developmental delays but cant find exactly whats happening to my son. He can say dad but pronounces it as deyd. He can say bababa. He cant even call me mama! Everyones saying he should be speaking phrases by his age and should be able to communicate his needs and wants but he simply cant. I was frustrated, worried since he is my first child and only one. I didnt know what to do. He can understand what i am saying so does it mean that he doesnt have a hearing problem? I have read some possible reasons of speech delay like hearing problems and autism. Im scared that my son has more serious problem than i ever imagined. Please help. Thanks.
