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.
Mom to my wonderfully sweet toddler who is the joy of our lives. :
