In brief: Can she/he hear?
The most important first step is to assure that your toddler can hear normally.
Talk to your pediatrician. If a baby cannot hear normally, speech acquisition is often delayed. If the hearing is normal, a developmental evaluation may be important.

In brief: This is concerning
A hearing exam must be initiated including ENT referral.
Speech referral as well. Has there been any language acquisition at all? Please go to your pediatrician asap and get your child the care he/she needs.

In brief: Needs evaluation!
Bring your toddler in to your pediatrician and voice your concerns about his development.
There are many questions to answer here? Does your child smile and interact with others? Does he gesture and point? Does he seem to understand what you say? How is his hearing? Does he have good eye contact with you and others? Hearing test by OAE is definitely in order! Best of Luck!
