On average kids begin using their first words at around 12-18 months of age. There’s a steep growth in language with toddlers generally using around 50 single words and beginning to combine two words together.
Research tells us that early intervention can make a big difference to their future development, so if your child is behind in their milestones getting help sooner rather than later is advised.
