"Approximately 5-8% of preschool children (i.e. between 1 in 12 and 1 in 20 children) have language delays that continue throughout their school years and into adulthood. These ongoing difficulties with language are associated with difficulty learning to read and write, poorer academic performance, more limited employment opportunities and difficulties with social relationships."

"15-20% of two year olds are delayed in their expressive language development (i.e. they talk late and do not use as many words or sentences of the same complexity as their peers), but are otherwise developing as expected. Not all of these children outgrow their language delay and up to 60% of them may continue to experience language delays into later childhood and adulthood."
