Limited history reflects significant speech delay which may be associated with delay in other developmental aspects. Strongly suggest to see a pediatrician for thorough developmental assessment.

See a developmental paediatrician, speech therapist & get a hearing test ASAP!

It would be a good idea to get a comprehensive assessment by a Child Psychologist and a Speech Pathologist. They can provide you with a detailed overview of your child's developmental achievements as well as areas of need. A thorough assessment will facilitate a clear treatment plan to guide you in best assisting your child.

Agree with previous comments. Best to get an assessment. Maybe start with a paediatrician who can do a medical assessment. A speech pathologist can assess speech and recommend speech therapy if appropriate. An educational and developmental psychologist will be able to assess intellectual functioning. Ruling out hearing problems is also important so the suggestion to screen your child's hearing is also a great idea. Best of luck!
