I have a nearly 22 mo DS that has very little expressive language. At his 18 mo appointment we got put on the wait list for a speech evaluation but I don't know when that is going to happen as the list is quite long I've been told. He does say mom, dad, tries the dogs name, yes, no and a few other things but he has decided that he can gesture to get what he wants. His receptive language is really good and he can follow 2 step commands no problem but he just seems to not want to talk. I know my neice (who is 6 months older than DS) talks up a storm and was doing so at this age. I guess I think he does have a speech delay (Obviously) but if it's a part of something larger I don't know. Sometimes I feel like he just doesn't want to talk so he doesn't...
So please, if any of you have experience with this or things to share I'd sure appreciate that.
