They did a hearing test and he can hear fine. Physically his is good for the most part, but mentally he is delayed a lot and in communication.

They want me to wait for 24 months before another evaluation.

Now we are in search of our own occupational therapist.

Have you had his hearing tested? Dd2 wasn't understanding anything expect tone of voice and she failed her hearing test, and ended up with hidden (they flushed all the wax out of her ears just in case and discovered....) double ear infections with no symptoms (so who knows how many she has had). When those were cleared up and we started therapy she got MUCH better at understanding us.
