My twins are 19 months old and my girl twin has picked up words easily but my boy does not talk still. He has 2 words, Mama and Bye bye. Meanwhile my girl can point to body parts when asked, says a whole list of words: mama, bye bye, no, cup, block, yes, go, baby, fish, shell, this, milk, piggy, Olaf (thanks frozen!) etc...
He appears to be able to hear and kinda takes direction for example if I ask him if he wants a snack he will sit at the table and wait, he dances to music, claps if you say yay. He babbles quite a bit but does not really try to imitate what I say to him.
The pediatrician referred us for speech and he had an evaluation in November and she did not really seem to be concerned and wants us to consult monthly with them but honestly we cannot afford it, even with insurance the eval cost us $290 and thats just not doable with a one income family.
Any tips? Should I be overly concerned?
