Melissa Wexler Gurfein, an SLP in New York City, was quoted via e-mail in a July 4 article on WebMD.com concerning “late talkers,” or children with a limited vocabulary at age 2. Although there is no way to know if a child will catch up to his or her peers, Gurfein recommends early intervention for children younger than 3 years .
