I have come across several instances of this in recent years (not as clients)
In each case they had older siblings who talked for them AND (this is the biggie) they were constantly given an ipad to "keep them quiet".
My recommendation was to take the ipad away and stop letting the older kids talk for them.
Personally I don't think this is a case for hypnosis, more like family therapy/coaching.
Completely agree with, Barry.
Additionally, I never work with a child based on what the parent wants.
Remove pacifiers if still used
Turn off the TV
Decrease the level to which others speak for the child
Keep seeing the specialists. (Though Im not sure what exactly they are saying hes too young for.)
There's also a case for multimedia expanding knowledge and vocabulary. There are even some apps designed to encourage vocalising and feedback!
Then there's a whole host of possible medical stuff which can be overlooked. Very recently I heard a renowned primary school educator/guru tell of his son's first words at much older than 4 (6 I think he said). Turns out there was a restriction that made it difficult for him to breathe, let alone talk - that went right under the radar. And he also said that he communicated through his older sibling - who understood the mutterings and would act as translator.
I also heard that multi-lingual environments can often delay communication in toddlers, not sure if it's true though.
