My question is do kids who don't really say much will just start talking a storm outta nowhere? Is that possible?

It depends. If there is a delay in development or issue with hearing then no just letting it go will not result in them talking up a storm outta nowhere. What would be best to do is get the child evaluated for any delays and his/her hearing tested to make sure there is not an issue that needs to be address now.

I would have his hearing tested. Sometimes lots of ear infections can cause hearing loss. If he was tested awhile back it might be worth testing again. Sometimes things are missed.

My son will be 4 in couple months. He had a lot of ear infections until we placed ear tubes when he was 2 1/2. We started doing speech when he was almost 3 and we also enrolled him in a school for special needs school. We've had him evaluated by a speech therapist at children's hospital and she wasn't sure if he was autistic or not. They placed him in the autism class, but after couple weeks his teacher and the speech therapist said he's too advanced for this class he has met all his goals for the 6 months school period. He understands everything we tell him, and he's very smart. I feel like he's capable of saying words but he's just stubborn at times. Will he ever talk?

It's possible. How old is the child and has he/she had a hearing test yet?
