Should you worry? What is a language delay

Your child's language development depends on a large variety of factors- are they an only child or a twin? Have they had multiple ear infections? Are they hearing more than one language in their home?

One thing that is for certain is that children develop language at their own pace. Speech-Language Pathologists use developmental milestones as the basis for determining a language delay. Common milestones are highlighted in the chart below.
