    hello,I can understand how worried you might be about your child.Well,a 2yrs three months old child should be able to make some sentences, something like *I will beat you o* even if its not very smooth.i understand the child can hear and understand commands,but the problem might just be her *talking* There could just be a problem with just her talking and not her brain development. I will advice you see another paediatrician for second opinion.
