Predictors of late talking in toddlers

Science Daily has an article (13 July 2006) on a study by the Telethon Institute for Child Health Research, Curtin University of Technology, and the University of Kansas (USA) on predictors of late talking in toddlers.

The main findings of the study were that 1) roughly 13 percent of children at age two were late talkers; 2) that factors involving mothers' education, income, and such had no significant influence; and 3) that most late talkers had normal language development by age seven.
