hi Lakshmi Karthik! how r u ! u r doing a great job just continue being patient and persistent in your efforts. it's advisable to consult a special educator who could plan IEP for your child and guide u with day to day intervention to get better results. meanwhile u could continue interacting a lot with your child. while he is playing keep talking and saying what he is doing. for instance he is building blocks , u could say " u picked up pink block" . give him enough opportunities to speak up even if he takes time, wait patiently. use non verbal cues as well. make sure whenever u speak to him u come to his eye level. praise him when he responds. imitate his actions just to catch attention. Lakshmi earlier the intervention the better it gets so do consult a special educator or as u mentioned u will enroll him in a special school , go ahead with it. hope this will help u!
