My son is 18 months and doesn't really say many words. He says duck, dog, bad dog, mum(now and then). He points to a lot of things and says something in his language. Is other 18 month old boys talking or saying complete words that are understood? I know girls development the vocabs a lot quicker than boys. I read to him all the time and point and telling what things are. What else can be done to help is vocabs?

Children all develop on their own schedule and at their own pace. The things you are doing are excellent to encourage speech..now if this reaches a point where you are worried and think he should be speaking but he isn't meeting his milestones ..you should see about having him evaluated by a speech pathologist. In a lot of areas this can be done free of charge to you because of government funded programs.

I would personally wait 6 more months and see that he is putting 2 words together that make sense at about 2yrs.
