Question Asked:

"hi docs. wish you all a prosperous New year. keep up the good works. My question is about my 32months old son. who previously used to Say a few words like mummy, daddy, Amen, and say fine(kine) when asked 'how are you'. I travelled for 3 months and left him in my parents care he also recently started school pre nursery. My worries is that right now he doesn't say any words other than baby blabs but he still listens to instructions like sit, stand, stop, bring this or that and if I call his name he comes even if we are not in the same room. pls what could be wrong with his speech development.

    A prosperous 2016 to you too. I find your observations about your boy a bit intriguing. It would have been clearer if he never said meaningful words at all, but to have started normally only to stop is a bit confusing. Wonder if you've noticed any other developmental delays in him as well. While your absence for 3months may have affected him emotionally, i wouldn't want you to take chances here. I think it is best to let a Paediatrician see your child. Better to err on the side of caution with kids
