Is he having problems physically talking - stuttering, lisp, cannot pronounce words? or is the problem about acquiring vocabulary and forming complete sentences?

Has he progressed over the years with speaking? Is he just now starting to speak? More details about his speech background and his current problem might help get some suggestions. I'm not positive, but I would not think that the different languages should impede his ability to speak. At a young age, children are like sponges and soak everything up. The research shows that learning multiple languages is easier at an early age. Have you considered he may be choosing not to speak? More details would help.
