My 2/ half year old is still not talking, He communicates by screaming or giving you his cup when he wants something, he normally does things on his own but won't say words to get what he wants. When he gets mad he screams, At first we thought it was a hearing problem but he can hear a bag rustle from two or one room away. A whisper2feet away. He says momma when he wants, Dada, several words like cup, juice, dog, cat, no etc etc etc but isn't saying small sentences or even trying to talk like other kids his age. Other then his verbal skills he seems to be at his milestones with walking, jumping, singing (jibber jabber) Maybe it's the terrible twos? Recently he's been banging his head when he gets frustrated or angry when we tell him NO. I'm beginning to get scared but at the same time he is our only child, never around other children near his age, we never talked baby talk or in a baby voice. Should I get him speech therapy?
