In brief: Language delay

Usually, non verbal speech (checking out tasks) comes before first words at 10 mo to 1.
5 yrs. If no words by 18 mo, then that is considered speech delay and needs further evaluation. Behaviors are also addressed as well as walking to make sure autism spectrum does not occur (1/55 boys).
