Is he in daycare? Do you read books to him every night? Sing? Do you have one on one conversations on a daily basis? These things can help with language.

I'm not adding to the discussion, but just wanted to dispel this persistent myth. Einstein spoke in complete sentences at some point between two and three years of age. Source.
eh parents believe anything the doctors say to make them feel better, no harm in it
"if your kid isn't talking don't worry! Einstein and bill gates started at 4 and they're genius'!"

My son had issue with speech delay. He did not talk anything meaningful till he was over 4 years old. We got concerned when he was 2 years old and had severe speech delay. His hearing was tested and was send to pediatrician. Everything was normal. In the pre-school he was assigned a speech therapist who worked with him for an year. In Kindergarden, he was still very late in talking and he had speech therapist coming from school one a week and finally he picked up talking when he turned out to be in grade 1.
