Is My Child a Late Talker Or Speech Delayed?

A child who is typically developing in the areas of language comprehension, play, physical development, and cognition but has a limited spoken vocabulary (expressive language) for his or her age.


A CHILD WITH A SPEECH DELAY

A CHILD WITH A COMMUNICATIVE DISORDER

Clinicians judge whether a child's skills are typical and age appropriate based on numerous studies conducted on typically developing children across the globe.
