This is normal. My son is 21.5 months and he just started saying a bunch of words. He has been very slow. I have been told, boys are slower. I can say that, my daughter talked by 10-11 months. So, I too was concerned about my son. I just did a bunch of research and found it is completely normal. If he is not talking by 24 months, get his ears checked and get a second opinion on the speech.

As for the clapping, maybe he just doesn't like it.....
