Language development status at the 27-30 month review, Glasgow City, 2013-15SSLMR gender

Boys were more likely than girls to be assessed as having communication delay at the 30 month assessment (30% of boys as opposed to 17% of girls)


The health visitor asks parents if their child can say 50 words from a list of common words.  This list is presented to the parent on a sheet of paper for identification. Having less than 32 words is suggestive of communication delay.
