When a child has motor issues, very often their speech is slower as well. Getting the body moving helps the entire brain to develop. You son may have muscle tone issues. I agree with the pp who suggested getting him evaluated by an EI team. I got tons more info when i took my child to Children's Hosp for an evaluation. (While the local EI program was helpful, they didn't have Drs working for them. One of the people who evaluated my child had only a BA in Early Childhood. I wanted someone with more specialized education/exp in neurological and physical development to do a full eval). My insurance covered that completely. Once we addressed my child's motor issues, everything else fell into place. It sounds like you are a very thoughtful mother doing all the right things. The toe walking should be addressed at this point, I think.
