first thing i would do is have him do a hearing test, and then a language assessment from a speech therapist. my daughter (26mths) doesn't talk much either - only single words, and is only just starting to imitate my speech (when she feels like it - not all the time) but all her tests and assessments came out fine. you can try to contact Dr Anna Lee at [email protected], she works a the HKU Division of Speech and Hearing Sciences, Developmental Dyslexia Clinic (www.hku.hk/dyslexia) and she can do language assessments for you at your own home ($2500) she is very informative, perhaps talking to her she can already ease some of your concerns.
she tells me that as long as there is comprehension then all is fine - school will help her to develop her language base eventually. does your child have any problems at school? perhaps you can talk to her teacher (not playgroups - but actual nursery classes I mean).
