Hello,
   a 19 month old should be producing words and meaningful gestures, if not two word combinations. Your child should be evaluated by a professional to determine if she has a developmental delay. You will want to make an appointment to see your pediatrician. Ask if there is anything that could explain why your daughter is not producing words (hearing loss, low muscle tone in her face/lips etc.). Your pediatrician can refer you for a developmental assessment. You can get a developmental assessment from a psychologist, through your county's infants and toddler program, or through a multidisciplinary team at a hospital.

      While some professionals take a 'wait and see' attitude, by 19 months with no words you have waited long enough before seeking help. Early intervention services help many children and families, and are available for free through your county.

Best Wishes
