My 15 month old son is not saying many words yet. He says mama and dada all day long but not necessarily to grab our attention.
He does repeat words occasionally. If I say, "say bus," he says "ba." Does that count as a word? He will also say "wa" for water and "ma" for "milk."
Anyway, our pediatrician informed us that those approximations don't count as real words and that our son should have 5 solid words. He recommended an evaluation.
Any advice? Should I schedule an evaluation?
