Delayed speaking
Hi, my daughter hardly speak a few words even if she knows those few words. She prefers to communicate through shouting or crying methods. Her birth was a normal birth and all other progress is quite normal. She started walking at 10 months and her heigh, weight etc is normal. Some of the kids of her age are speaking very well though our kid started to walk ahead of all of them. Shall we start worrying about her or some kids take time in speaking. She utters a few words like mama, nana, mummy, nani, mosi etc. but after insisting a lot to say these words.

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.
