Thanks for replying,his hearing is checked and is fine everything we have possibly done even the speech therapist has tried ,but his mother is the one who has Putin so much effort into him and taught him all he is potty trained as well .Yes when he wants something he points out or takes his mother and shows her.He is a very disciplined boy ?Its highly frustrating .is mother is full day after him to teach him to talk and play and do other activities with him .

How does he communicate when he wants something, does he point silently or make sounds?
Have you had his hearing tested? Just because he can follow commands, doesn't mean he can hear everything. He may be able to make out one word from the sentence or be following visual cues to work out what you mean. I would suggest having him checked over by your doctor, the sooner any problems are treated the sooner you can stop worrying.
My son didn't speak until he was 4, he is now 6 and doing really well but we've had a lot of support through his school and regular speech therapy.
I hope you find some answers and support soon.
