How many words can the average 24 month old say?

When Xander was 20 months we met with First Steps, an organization that works with kids under 3 in our community with developmental delays. Although he didn't qualify for the program I was a little worried about his speech. But now he seems to talk more than average. He can say some complete sentences. How many words can your 24 month old say?

  • Every child is different. Some talk early, some don't say much at all until after age 2. My girl is 11 months and she says 8 words. But that doesn't mean anything. Each child develops at there own pace.

  • Mine said his first word at 23 months, which is why he's in speech therapy now.

    On average, a 2 year old should be able to say 50 words and at least begin to use 2-3 word phrases.
