I agree with the speech therapists opinion that their is clear delay and the cause needs to be known before making a decision about whether language and speech will develop or not. As per 4 years is concern, a child's critical learning period for speech and language is 0-7years. Yes, 4years is late. But still if proper therapy is given. Based on the child's disorder improvement can be seen.
Next Steps
consult a qualified speech therapists soon
Health Tips

There clearly is a delay in the speech milestones. You may need to visit the speech and occupational therapists to get to know the proper line of intervention for your child. There is a series of assessments that may be required to be done before starting off the therapies.
Next Steps
Please visit a speech therapist and an occupational therapist.
