He if you ask him a question he will responsed with things like pizza man or money. He repeats remand words often and remand movements. He just has odd behavior at times like today in the grocery store he was holding a head of cabbage and just throws it over his back. This behavior It's very frustrating can anyone help me?

He needs to be evaluated by a professional. He is 4 years old and can not communicate effectively. Of COURSE he is going to be frustrated and act out. He should have received a hearing test and a full evaluation 2 years ago. Hasn't his doctor expressed concerns before now? It definitely sounds like there are more issues at play than just lack of speech, but a full evaluation will help point those out and get you the help he needs.

I do not know where you are located, but Easter Seals handles this stuff in the US for kids under 3. At this point you would have to speak to his doctor and/or the local school and they can point you in the right direction for assistance.
