My Son is 2.7 yrs. He speak some workds like mamma, papa, nani, nanu, dadi, chacha, but he doesnot speak even a single sentence. I try him to speak by saying words again and again like work book, on daily basis i tried to speak this work or other 50 times a day but he did not respond or may be even not try to speak. I am worried what to do.

Thank you so much Chet MC for your reply. Yes he understands what i tell him and yes he responds to me by motions mostly. Definitely i will check the hearing test of him. Yes i try to normally speak to him both in english and hindi and may be you are right it will take time for him to understand the language. Thanks for your suggestion. And if you have any other please help me out. Thank you so much.

Does he understand what you tell him? Does he communicate in other ways, like with motions or gestures? If he seems fine in all other ways he's more than likely okay. Is he exposed to more than one language? Children who are learning two languages often take longer to speak. That's fine. They're better off in the long run, it's just takes them more time to get started. You could talk to your doctor, and also get his hearing tested, but the main thing is to just keep talking to him. Describe what you do as you do it. Label objects - point to things and tell him what they are like, "look at that red car" or "I see the cat". Ask him questions like "do you want the red cup or the blue cup?". Sing songs, recite rhymes and read little books together. All of that will help. Most likely, he just needs time.
