Hi, my child is 2 and a half and has still not started speaking. Not even words. Just makes some sounds that doesnt mean anything. Also he never takes instructions ...like normally he is doing all activities like running, jumping, etc. Bt if i tell him to do something he just ignores and does not follow. While teaching also i try to show him books and also illustrate on a slate but he takes no interest in what i am showing him or point out things if i ask him to. He never sits in his class and is always roaming around in class in his pre school. Please help as to how can I make him follow instructions and also what can i do to get his speech. Thankyou
