I definately agree. We started speech for my daughter at 18 months. If you are concerned at all, get an eval done. Even if it turns out he is not delayed, then no biggie, but if he is delayed they can get moving on services.

i am so sorry i am just now answering this question
we have various issues, some dealing with layne being tongue tied and having to re learn how to suckle, and then he did not tolerate different textures in his mouth. he also has reflux so she helped him get food down his throat comfortably as well. we have since switched therapist, our old therapist worked mostly with feeding and our new one is absolutely amazing.
My son, Ian, started seeing a speech therapist when he was about 14 months... he only had 2 words, and had feeding issues as well.
Since seeing a therapist he has about 5-6 words, can sign 3 words, and is getting better at eating (and swallowing!) his food.
I would say if you are concerned, get the ball rolling. Where I am in Canada, it took about 3 months on a waiting list before he could be seen.
my son has a speech delay and i got him tested around 18 months old. he wasnt even making consinent sounds. at their age they give them an early interevention specialist but now that my son is almost 2 1/2 we re going to have him see a speach therapist and see what happens. id say if your concered make an apt now. it never hurts.
