Talking toddler on the phone

Talking toddlers can have a wide variety of ability. Do you ever wonder if your toddler is on track with their speech and language development?

Speech-Language and Audiology Canada has outlined some things to look for with talking toddlers.


18 to 24 months:

  • Understand more words than he/she can say
  • Say two words together (e.g., More juice)
  • Ask simple questions (e.g., What’s that?)
  • Take turns in a conversation

24 to 36 months:

  • Use sentences of three or more words most of the time
  • Understand different concepts (e.g., in-on; up-down)
  • Follow two-part directions (e.g., take the book and put it on the table)
  • Answer simple questions (e.g., Where is the car?)
  • Participate in short conversations
