3 year old toddler not talking

My son just turned 3 in July and still is not talking. We have taken him for a full developmental evaluation and after 4 times going back they ruled out the question of Autism. We have taken him to have his hearing checked, he has had an eeg done, and a mri and all have come back normal. He had a speech evaluation and they placed him at 9-12 months for speech, and are questioning maybe apraxia? However they will not diagnois him now because of his age and his limited vocabulary. He was in EI for 2 years recieving OT, speech and PT therapy, and just recently graduated from the program. He has some sensory issues, along with feeding problems, and motor delays. We just got him placed in preschool and he is also seeing a speech therapist 1x per week at her office. He really is not making much improvement and I am beginning to worry that we are missing something.

Don’t worry, sometime it happens. If he like to watch TV, then buy toddlers educational DVDs for him, it can helps him to talk, because I’m using fit4-futur’s Math's leaning DVDs for my kids, & they are really happy with that, I really feel they are growing fastest with these DVDs. They are teaching basic mathematics workouts with the help of music & exercises, kids really like it, you also try, may be this will help you.
