2 yr old speech delayed

My son will turn 2 the first of October (2014) and is delayed in his speech. He is advanced in all other milestones. At only 9 months he coukd say Mom-mom. By 14 months he could say ten words. Then at 18 months just stopped. It was like he made his own language and used it instead. I had him tested for autism (speech decline being a sign of it). I was told he is not autistic and actually advanced in all other behaviors except speech. I'm having a speech therapist come and work w/ him. I was wondering & hoping others would have some tips that I, as his mom-mom, could do to help him. OR if I should have him further tested. I only want the best for my son and am no way one of those over aggressive perfectionist parents. My grandma thinks Im over reacting b/c 'back in when she had kids you didnt start worryn' til they were 3-4'. Thank you to anyone willing to help & please dont waste your time or effort telling me to post on a Parenting board/forum. I already have.
