If you're concerned do it. There's a lot more to an SLP eval than just how many words, and they will be able to get a good idea if she is a late talker or really delayed. Better to do it now and know than wait and miss valuable intervention.

The normal range is variable. My 18 month old knows over 50 words and puts two together. My 3 year old, at that age, was diagnosed with severe hearing loss, and when we started signing learned 20 words in a month. That's why you need an eval, these people have experience and will know the difference
