Speech development in children

Variations in the development of speech often cause parents great anxiety. Some children develop speech later than their peers. Two to four-year-old children typically use three word sentences, and may know as many as 350 words. Thirty-eight children who were speaking none to ten words at two years of age showed normal speech development by four years of age. (Developmental Medicine and Child Neurology 33:868-874, 1991).
