It is very important to have you child screened by a licensed speech-language pathologist who is also American Speech-Language & Hearing certified (ASHA).

The SLP may help you learn the reason (s) for the delay e.g. developmental neurological reasons, lack of interest in communicating with other (possibly in autistic spectrum}, neurological-developmental delay, premature birth, other people speaking for him/her, oral-motor structures not in tact, medical side-effects impairing larynx, etc.
