I'm very concerned about my 28 month old son. His speech is late and now he tells me words like orange or banana but only as a label rather than I want one. He knows his numbers and alphabet.
He doesn't ask for things or wave/follow my gaze or pointing finger. His response to name being called is pretty absent as well.
I'm going to pay to see a paediatrician but want to know what I should do before then. I want to know what I should do to prepare.
I've started writing notes and taking videos of how he plays by pushing cars against his face while looking at wheels.
I want to make the most of the appointment.

Are you in the UK? Have you spoken to your health visitor about your concerns? When was his last review/when is the next one due?

I think your HV or GP is the best starting point.

He's not had his 2 year review because of covid. I wanted to see a speech therapist but that was also put on hold.

@GrapePearPea yes I saw a paediatrician privately and he's now on the ASD pathway.
