Hello there, my son is 2 years and 3 months old. He does not talk and does not respond when we call him. However, he can say different alphabets and few rhymes which we guess he learned from watching cartoons. He is also very afraid of toys with lighting features, also he is very reluctant to eat new foods. Should we wait for another 2/3 months or should we visit a doctor immediately? Please advice and also suggest us experts in this field whom we can visit for these development disorders.
