Local options: First, an average 2yo is expected to speak such that strangers understand only half of his words/75% by 3y and 95% by 4. If you think your kid is behind, check into early childhood programs locally or have a speech therapist assess the problem. It is common for some 2yo to have a transient shudder or garbled speech but these improve with age.
