When can you start a toddler on speach therapy?

My 15month old does not talk at all. We go for his check up tomorrow and I'm wondering if the doctor will recommend speech therapy, or if they will wait until his 18 month checkup.

  • 15 mos is generally very young, as most language explosions happen closer to 18 mos

  • My son's doctor started really talking to me about it at 18 months old, and we got started when he was 2 years old.
