My two year old son (just turned two) seems to be behind in

Resolved Question:

My two year old son (just turned two) seems to be behind in speech and language. He does not say many coherent words. We would think at this point he would be saying mommy or daddy, but none of the above. We think he attempts to say apple and light. He is able to understand words, shakes his head when he want to say no.. but the words are just not coming out.Our other children were at full-time Nursery from 6 months onwards, where as the non speaker is only a couple mornings per week.Should we be worried at this stage? Should we put him in some sort of language class?thxShould we be taking him
