Examples given

Detailed Answer:
Stereotypic play means if a child keeps playing with a car toy in circles then he keeps on playing with it in the same way.

Imaginative play is imagining new improvements in that play with the car and playing with it.

Brief Answer:
Use single language and encourage talking

Detailed Answer:
Hi... I had asked about his imaginative play and other history keeping in mind autism.
Now I am convinces that this is not Autism and he is just having an isolated language delay.

Just language stimulation will make him talk and the other simple tips you need to follow are like using always a single language with the child, if he asks for anything by showing, telling the name of his favourite toy or favourite food or water, gentle encouragement flight not giving a particular toy of food till he tries to tell its name, if he speaks any word profuse encouragement.

Complete stoppage of using of electronic gadgets even while making him feed or to stopping him cry. I am telling this becomes electronic gadgets make the kid understand everything and his comprehension of the language will be good, but as they do not interact spontaneously, the kids also do not get the idea of interacting with language.

Apart from this once the kid goes to the play school he will start interacting with other kids there and improve a lot.
