As a person who has studied speach and language therapy in the under fives I would say take him to the doctors. At around two you should see signs of language developing into two and three word sentences. Your son is now 2.7 so if he is struggling he needs to be investigated. It could be many things delaying his speach. For example an ear infection which has left him with muffled sound. If he is the youngest child parents tend to do everything for them. Children can just point and we will fetch juice for them. Make your son ask for things and force him to speak. It is always a good idea to have him checked out so that you know there are no underlying problems. Ask to be referred to a speach therapist who will give you simple games to play with your child to encourage speach. Before long you wont be able to shut him up!
