hand flapping is a form of stimulation and this young age, only something to observe. It may be just a phase or how he is expressing himself. Give it some time.

My son flapped his hands until he turned three. At first doctors said it was something to keep an eye on, esspecially since Autism runs in my family, but since he was doing so well with eye contact, speech and communication they have ruled out Autism.
I suggest you mention it to your pediatrician since hand flapping is a sign of Autism, but I would not worry just yet.

i am not sure what hand flapping is? But 2 years old and not speaking is not so abnormal some boys are just that way. :)
