This. Go with you gut, mama! DS didn't have any words until 18 months and now at 26 months he only has a hand full. I got him evaluated and he qualifed for the program (it's called first steps here) which means he has more than a 50% delay. I'm really glad I didn't talk myself of getting him an eval!
