20 month old not talking

can any one give me information on early intervention for kids on the gold coast? Is there a low cost option for speech therapy or the like? I have a suspicion my childs lack of words (none at all) is more than just not talking i feel it may be muscle related as he cant seem to move his mouth in the "mmmm or ppppp" position for example and when he was a bubs I really had trouble getting him to eat as he would just push the food out with his tounge and the only way i could really get food into him was to time it perfect and hold the spoon a certain angle and push back and up onto the palate of his mouth. He is much better with eating now although wont have more than a few mouthfulls and then wants his bottle but better. But he doesnt say mum dad no or anything so im wondering if itls related. If you could help with info that would be appreciated. Ta

I am not sure on the speech therapy if your child is in school/childcare you can see if they can help you with any resources on that matter. I would not be so stressed about your child not talking at this age the age where a parent/ teacher needs to worry when the child is about three years old. Hope that helps you
