Normally, fastest children have started to speak at the age of 10 months. Initially the new single words. At the age of 18 months is starting to sound he was able to compose short sentences. The child then is able to construct the perfect sentence after the age of 30 months. Obviously there are variations between the ages.
When you are past the age of two years, but the child is still not able to utter the words, the possibility of the state is the beginning of the disruption of the ability to speak. The cause needs to be tracked from an early age, whether due to congenital factors or due to other diseases. If the condition is part of heredity, for example if there are family members who also have the condition too late to talk, then that case is still classified as a slow talker.

Children also do not develop speaking ability when he experienced deaf and low vision acuity. Therefore, efforts to observe the ability to hear and see the sharpness in infants as early as possible is an important thing. Babies who did not flinch when given the sound of clapping or not diligent eyes twitch when invited to speak, may have disadvantages in that section.
