Speech problem
Sir/mam My son is 3yrs and 5 months old. He hasnt started speaking words. Only one or two words is what he is speaking clearly like papa. He started speaking many words when he was completing 2nd yr of age. But slowly and gradually he reduced and stopped speaking now. He is only producing sounds like "de", "wo" etc. He is active in all works. He follows what is being commanded to him. But he never speaks or ask for anything on his own. Not even food or water. Its when we give or ask he nods or refuses as per his wish. Kindly help.

Children's speech and language development follows a typical pattern. For example at first birth day the normal children speak at least one meaningful word, at the age of 2 years they should able to combined two words and at the age of 3years expected to speak in sentences .The deviation in such pattern is considered as delayed speech and language. Early professional help (Speech language therapy) can be very much effective for developing the communication skills and achieving academic goal among such children. Tongue tie can result into pronunciation problem specially dental sounds not the language delay.Your child need consultation of Speech Language Pathologist ( SLP) & Audiologist for detail evaluation.

U need to get him evaluated by an ENT specialist to rule out tongue tie,  because there's no hearing problem from what u are describing. Also consult a speech therapist after that to resolve the issue
