My son is almost two and still hasn't said a single word. He says baba and dada but I don't think he actually knows what he's saying. He won't mimic or say something when you ask. I'm just so overwhelmed with the possibility that he might be autistic. Of course that's not the only reason I think that. He is also an extremely picky eater, which I understand most toddlers are so that just makes me even more confused. Any tips and advice would be amazing, thanks.

I was in the same situation before .My son didn't say a word until he turned to 2 1/2. He didn't start really talking until he turned to 3. Interacting with other kids is crucial, my son really started saying sentences after sent to preschool. So, get him exposed to other kids as much as possible. about food, my son was a terrible eater, he only ate bread with peanut butter, rice alone, he doesn't want any vegetable, meat and fruits except bananas. What i did is that i just wait for him to get hungery. No snack, milk and juice between meals, after a week's of training. Now he starts eating vegetables and meat.

Thank you so much. I'm a stay at home mom so he doesn't get any interaction with kids his age. We'll have to get him around some kiddos and hopefully that'll help. Thanks again, it's nice to know I'm not the only one going through things like this.
