Hello,
First of all, I am not a doctor. This site is mostly discussions between other parents. However, I do have some advice. Have you son evaluated by "early intervention." This is typically a service provide through the school district and is no cost. Contact the school district for information. If appropriate, they will provide a speech therapist and other support services. Did you talk to the doctor about your concerns at his 3 year check up? If not, give the doctor a call. She will also have some advice. My son's doctor was concerened about him not talking at 18 months! If yours is not talking at 3 years, it's time for an intervention. Good luck.

Sorry, I just realized you were in Saudi Arabia so the "early intervention" may not apply. However, contacting the MD or a speech therapist would still be a good idea.
