My son Is 2 yrs 9 months and yes he has a quiet a few medical problems.
his talking is way behind almost like a 12-18 month old his attention spans is not that great and will only come to me or my partner or grandparents he won't come to our friends when they call his name even if they are 1 mtr away from him and my ds knows our friends quiet well as they have been in his life since birth though.
Oh and his hearing is fine we have had that checked many times.
We know with his medical condition that talking may be off for a while yet even at all and even ds's Doctors are unsure weather speech therapy will help.
So i guess my question is how is your 2 nearly 3 yr old with talking and does he/she notice when a family friend call their name.
