Is his speech development ok?

My son will be 2 in may. He only uses few words everyday as: mama, dog, truck , bye-bye and drink.
he can say: car, yellow, one, two, three, eyes, and a few more

but what concerns me is that he dont use none of his words in secentences at all. he started walking late (13 months) so is this just slow development i should be worried about or just wait and if so how long?

  • If you have any concerns, you can call early intervention in your area (you can usually google it) and they will do an evaluation for free. If they find he is behind they will provide speech therapy for free or for very low cost.

  • You can get him checked if you feel you need to, but this sounds like my dd in a way (she walked at 9 mos). Before dd turned 2, she was speaking random words I would call it. She was a late talker; 19 mos she started saying words other than "mama" "dada" and "baba" (ball). Dd turned 2 in Nov and almost immediately started saying 2-3 word sentences and now she's in full sentences. I'v also read that if they don't talk by age 2 (just words) to get them checked out and some kids don't say sentences until 2 1/2 - 3. To me, your son sounds on track! I do understand the worry and there's no harm in getting him checked!
