My child who is 23 months old, able to tell some words, babbles more, follow instructions, understands things, once he understoods never forgets. But not carrying words forward. Looks like he has developed all motor skills. But lagging in speech, plays well, kicks ball, appreciate things he likes. Not searches for things but will appreciate if it is in his way. Can you please suggest about his development?
Your son is showing some delay in the area of speech/language, and this may be in the context of generally sound development overall. If the pace of his speech/language does not pick up some momentum over the next several months it would be prudent to arrange an evaluation with a Speech/Language pathologist and/or arrange an Earli Intervention evaluation.
