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.
