Pediatrics/Delay in sentence making in 2 years 4 month old kid



My son is 2 years 4 month old. All his milestones (like teething, walking) were fine except speech. At this age he speaks words only and not try to make sentences. He is very active and love to try to sing the tones of songs but whenever we try to speak 2-3 words together he don't pay attention.
We are using 2 languages at home. I am Hindi speaking and my in-laws are marathi speaking. Could this 2 languages at home be confusing to him,? Please suggest some solution for this problem.


Though two languages do cause confusion, it cannot prevent a child a from learning the sentence making.
If a 2 year old child cannot join or use a veb, there is serious need to get a BERA test (speech processing pathway)and a speech therapist analysis as the child is likely to lag behind his peers that may cause social issues with child apart from personality changes and associated possiblity of autistic spectrum issues.
to conclude, go to a speech therapist earliest and also get child screened for PDD. ( pervasive developmental disorders that present with speech delay.)
