Some kids just don't talk until they are older. Einstein didn't speak a word until he was three. But, they just have to make sure and get the kids evaluated for their own wellbeing, just to make sure nothing else is going on.
Quoting .ChiMama.:Was there a reason you didn't speak?
My oldest was like that. Basically repeated the last word you said till he was just shy of 3 then he started saying his own things. So he talked but didn't form thoughts and say them. I thought it was odd but he is actually very smart.
My daughter was talking tons at 18 months. Our second boy was closer to 2 but still much before his brother. Either It was from being the first meaning he never needed or wanted, we had a shcedual and he knew sign language for things like drink, milk, more ect so he didn't have to talk.
When he did talk it was very clear, where my daughter was hard to understand for over a year.
My nephew was exactly like that! Just one day having full on conversations with us. Lol
Quoting christina0607:Also when he did start talking he immediately started talking in complete sentences. As if he had been saving it up....or decided he wasn't going to do it until he could do it perfectly.
This. I also talked late but had an extensive vocabulary and tested highly. Ds was the same (I also got a lot of pressure to test for special needs) and has the IQ of a genius.
