Delay in starting speakin

Sir, my daughter is about 2 years old now but she does not speak much words although she knows a few words but she avoids using them. Otherwise, she is a normal girl and does not have any other problems related to hearing or understanding the things. She knows a few words now like mama, nana, mummy, dada etc. Shall we wait and continue practising her or is it something to worry about. Please advise.

Children's speech and language development follows a typical pattern. For example at first birth day the normal children speak at least one meaningful word, at the age of 2 years they should able to combined two words and at the age of 3years expected to speak in sentences .The deviation in such pattern is considered as delayed speech and language. Early professional help (Speech language therapy) can be very much effective for developing the communication skills and achieving academic goal among such children.
