Two of my own children are speech delayed and on the autism spectrum. At this age that level of speech is a major delay, at least 12m behind. I have a 2yo with more sounds and his testing comes out as 12m age range. Speaking from personal, current info here. The staring and not recognizing one's name also major red flags for me. As for the sleep, why do they think she needs more? Is she lethargic and sleepy while awake? Super cranky and tantruming? That seems like a lot of sleep for a 2yo.

I know that there has been major debate in several locations about suggesting or not suggesting delays to parents and if it's right or wrong. In this case as difficult as it will be to convince Mom there's something going on I think you need to speak with her again.
