My son who is 20 months old does not communicate?

Hi, my son who is 20 months old does not communicate(No pointing etc) however he is potty trained(needs diaper only in night). He knows A-Z, can recognize A-Z and a-z knows 1-20. knows more than 20 animals knows sounds of animals and can tell few colors, knows lots of fruits and vegetables he is very smart otherwise but when it comes to communicate he don’t do anything. if he needs water he keep looking at it and than I have to give it. I’m really tensed if there is any issue with him or its just his nature please advice me what should I do?

Hi and welcome to question doctors.com
This is of course abnormal communication disorder.. And he may be having some autistic features based on your description that needs to be diagnosed abd managed with a psychiatrist..
It is still early to be worried ..but early intervention will improve his development faster …

hi
i do not think he is having any neurological problem. Some milestones take time to develop. The fact that he does so many other things normally suggests that he is absolutely normal and you need not worry.He will be able to communicate very soon. Make sure he is on healthy food.
Thanks

HI
IDEALLY AT THIS AGE,HE SHOULD COMMUNICATE EASLIY AND MORE SO BECAUSE HE IS DOING ALL THE OTHER EXPECTED ACTIVITIES THAT HAVE TO BE DONE AT HIS AGE. I WOULD SUGGEST YOU TO TAKE HIM TO A PAEDIATRIC NEUROLOGIST TO GET HIS LOCOMOTOR SYSTEM ASSESSED.

hello there
i have seen children at the age of 30 months who do not communicate properly. Your kid is just 20 months old and i assure you,he will soon start communicating. Speak to him,show him how to communicate or point towards a object. Just conselling will be enough
