Hi, I have twin boys who will turn of two years on 22 Oct 2014. I am concern and wondering when will they start talking. children of their age, speak but they dont. both started saying few words like mama, baba, 123 etc at age of 15-16 months. But now they have totally stoped saying a single word even when i ask them to repeat, they dont. instead one boy speak in the language, noone understand and other boy just take out sounds like ooooo, aaaaa etc. I am really upset, what shall i do.

I did not have twins, but my third child also do not speak at 24 month. The most I could get from him was five words that I had to solicit from him. Many people told me not too worry because he was my third and he didn't need to talk. i suspect you may hear that twins talk to each other and that can cause a delay in typical speech.
My advice, if you are concerned, get your kids hearing and speech evaluated by hearing and language professionals. In my case, my son did have an issue and needed a year of speech therapy to close the gap between him and his peers.
