Re: Speech Delay Is it time for eval?

We were told to get an evaluation at age two, so I'd give it a few more months/6 months before worrying. Some kids do talk later. My kid is a late talker. We were doing speech therapy and I dropped it for the next two months as it seemed more of a hassle than benefit for a late talker (if you have a special needs child I would absolutely push it). I did all the hoops with evaluations, worrying, private pay speech till I could find someone to take the insurance to decide forget it. My son is now starting to talk and at 3/fall we will put him in a speech preschool (more because I liked the school but speech is the bonus). I'd personally keep the focus on medical in less you truly feel something is wrong.
