My 18 month old DD only says 1-2 words. Mama and Buh bye-. Whenever I take her into a store she screams from the moment we get in it until we leave (which only lasts a couple minutes) because she will vomit she gets so worked up. But as soon as we get into the vehicle she's fine again. She has trouble with walking (may need braces).. She doesn't like her hair being brushed, teeth being brushed, giving affection.. so on and so forth. This can just be normal traits right? I am starting to get worried. I am going to the doctors this morning so I will talk to them about this. Just wanted other insight is all.Answer Question

It's hard to say, it's definitely time to have her evaluated. The most important thing is does she understand and respond to what you say to her.
My twins were late talkers, they were two and a half before they started saying their first words and three before they started using sentences. They were also very sensitive to noise and commotion. Their eleven now and perfectly fine. What's most important is if your DD can understand and respond to what you are saying to her.

It's good your having her seen by the doctor, there's a couple things you listed that my son did too, like he didn't say very many words either, I had him checked out too and he had a problem with comprehension. Once diagnosed, a bus would pick him up 3 days a week and take him to special schooling to help him, It really helped! He also had to wear special shoes and special glasses. but now he's 11 and everything's fine, he's like another kid! I started right where you are with a concern and a doctors visit. Your doing the right thing, there's help out there for everything! Best of luck to ya mom!
