You say he could not talk yet, but you say he knows colors, numbers, letters, etc. So how do you know he knows them if he can't talk? Or is it he just doesn't put the words together for phrases and sentences? At the risk of sounding rude, your sentences need a little help, too. I am confused by your post.

It sound's like he may be a little slow at putting the words together, but each kid is different. You should take Dove's advice and have his hearing and speech evaluated by a doctor to make sure there's nothing wrong physically. Your doctor can recommend if the child needs to go into speech therapy, or just needs you to work with him a little more at home.

You should have considered a hearing test and an evaluation over a year ago... so yes, please make an appointment w/ his doctor as soon as possible. His doctor hasn't expressed any concerns about his speech before?
