My son Noah had many symptoms of a tongue tie as a baby but I was never able to figure it out. I ended up pumping and bottle feeding. I started to worry when he got to 18 months and was not talking very much at all. We had just moved from the US to the UK so they sent over a health visitor to check him out. She was also very concerned and was starting to ask me questions related to autism. I know that was her concern because he was not talking, flapped his hands, etc. I mentioned a possible tongue tie and she said there is no way that it could effect his speech. My sister had a tongue tie and spoke shortly after having it clipped so I felt it was a good chance it could help my son.
