Thank you for your question.
I am Dr. Su S. and I will try my best to help you.
I am sorry for his symptoms.

How many words can he speak?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I'm not sure
Quite a few and a little sign
He lives across the street from gramma and Grampa and they're there all the time. I don't see him much but worry.

Thank you for the input.
There can be wide variation in individuals.
When he clearly says, mama, mom, dog, berger and tries to tell, I feel he would be able to talk.
Some babies can be late bloomers & may have some delay initially.
If he listens well, and follow words or commands, it is usually not worrying.
Please try to talk with him more frequently so that he can learn quickly.
I hope this information will be helpful.
