In brief: Language Development

At 22 months he should be say and increasing number of single words (about 5).
He should shake his head no and point to show what he wants. Because there are many causes for language/ communication delay he should have a developmental screening by his pediatrician including the mchat, a screen for autism. It is available online at https://www.M-chat.Org.
