Dear PvdM, this does sound rather puzzling. I'm not sure which type of specialists you took your child to. A paediatrician, who specializes in all childhood ailments could probably be best, at first. As Susan says, there could be a hearing problem, and that would be worth having tested. You could also consider taking him for a further assessment to the Dept of Paediatrics at Wits Medical School, where they could call on whatever other sort of specialist might be most helpful, to clarify this situation and advise on it's best management. I think they also have Speech Therapists handy there, too.
