Some toddlers are late to start talking or are using a limited number of words. We can help coach parents to use a number of strategies for enhancing language development in these children.
Who is a “Late Talker”?
A “Late Talker” is a toddler (between 18-30 months) who has good understanding of language, typically developing play skills, motor skills, thinking skills, and social skills, but has a limited spoken vocabulary for his or her age. The difficulty late talking children have is specifically with spoken or expressive language. This group of children can be very puzzling because they have all of the building blocks for spoken language, yet they don’t talk or talk very little. - Hanen
