Late Talker Website
Dr. Thomas Sowell wrote a book on late talking children that created a huge amount of attention, as well as some controversy.  I believe it's important to read the following, quoted from this website.  "What should I do about the late talking?  It is very important to rule out any medical conditions, including hearing loss that may be contributing to the late talking.  Many families have already done this before corresponding  with me, but be sure to do this if you haven't already.  It is very important to have an ACCURATE assessment completed by a skilled clinician. DO NOT ACCEPT ANY LABEL OR ASSESSMENT RESULTS THAT ARE NOT ACCURATE. You can contact the American Speech Language-Hearing Association in Rockville, Maryland for a list of certified clinicians in your area."
