This study examined when children are identified as normal development or late talking toddlers, characteristics of late talking toddlers, factors influence late taking toddler and how to help children in their language development. The study focused at 2-year-olds with a vocabulary delay whose nonverbal cognitive abilities fell within the normal range for their chronological age.
