he knows when i say "give me a high five"

"No"
when i call him

  • Have him say drink before getting him a drink - get him to tell you not just point to what he wants.

  • Let him take his time it will happen when you least expect it

  • Google early intervention for your area. They should be able to do a free developmental evaluation and let you know whether or not there is a delay in any area (it's possible he could have an expressive speech delay, but be on target with receptive speech). If there is a delay they will do free or very low cost therapy to help him catch up. It was a huge help with my son!
