Babbling differences in children with apraxia

My 18 month old doesn't speak yet, and he can only babble aaah, and at. He can say mama but only when asked. But no other vowels or consanants.( I know I spelled that wrong). My question is, do children with apraxia have these obvious differences in their babbling?

A child with Apraxia MAY babble less as a baby and may babble with a limited inventory of vowels and consonants. It is a "warning sign." However, there may be other reasons for that as well.

There is usually a language explosion around 18 months and there may be many reasons why I child isn't talking. If you are concerned, I would schedule an evaluation.
