Our 21 month old seems to be a little behind in his speech. He says basic things (mum, dad, baby, doggie, baby, yay) and babbles phrases that sound like 'what's that' and 'ooh yum/yeah'
He makes lots of different sounds like he's trying to say something but we can't make sense of it..
But that's as far as his vocabulary extends. We read to him daily and talk to him as we do daily tasks telling him what things are etc. he seems to understand what we say to him if we tell him to sit down or don't touch etc
Before anyone asks, he does use a dummy, but only for night time.
What are others opinions? Do we see a GP for speech delay or go straight to a speech pathologist/paediatrician? Do we need a referral?
