My son use to say quite a few words, (or at least try) like mom, da-da, doggy etc. But now he just makes a bunch of noises. When he wants something, he points at it and grunts. I try to tell him the words and sound them out for him but it seems like he's paying no attention. Now he knows what the words mean like if I say go give this to daddy, he'll do it but when I ask him to say da-da he wont. Should I be concerned.Answer Question

My son is 23 months and I'm sure he says more than 50 words, maybe closer to 100 and some 2-3 word sentences. HOw often do you talk to him? I have conversations with my son all the time. I ask him to say them, tell him what things are and he picks it up. I noticed that he doesn't speak as much if I don't prompt him to speak. And if that doesn't help, call a speech evaluater. Your local school district should be able to point you in the right direction.
