Dear ECDC,
My child is 3 years old and does not say very many words. How do I know if she is language delayed?
Signed,
A Very Worried Mom

Dear Worried Mom,
Many children develop language at different rates, however, it is important that you discuss your concerns with your child’s pediatrician. Here is a great resource to explain the development of language, as well as “red flags” which may indicate language delays. Here is a great website with more information: http://kidshealth.org/parent/emotions/behavior/not_talk.html
