When to Worry if a Child Has Too Few Words

There is nothing simple about speech, and there is nothing simple about speech delay — starting with the challenge of diagnosing it. Every pediatrician knows the frustration of trying to quantify the speech and language skills of a screaming toddler. How many words can he say? Can she put two or more words together into a sentence? Can people besides you understand him when he talks? Questions like these, put to the parents, are the quick and somewhat crude yardsticks we often use. Crude or not, the assessment is crucial: the earlier it is made, the earlier the speech-delayed child can get some help, and the earlier the help, the better the prospects.

LOOK: Emotional Brett Favre has to stop Hall of Fame speech and ask for water

Not only did Brett Favre give the longest speech in the history of the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday night, but he also gave one of the most emotional ones ever. During his 33-minute-and-20-second speech, Favre thanked everyone from his wife to his mom to his mother-in-law! As most people know, once you start thanking your mother-in-law, that pretty much means you're going to thank everyone you've ever met. For Favre, the hardest part of his speech to get through was the two moments where he thanked his family. In one instance, things got so emotional that Favre had to completely stop his speech so he could ask fellow inductee Kevin Greene for a bottle of water.

Is Good! Best Golden Globes Speech Ever

Yes, yes, last night was the Golden Globes. And boy, that Warren Beatty NEVER SHUTS UP. People looked pretty (but Jennifer Love Hewitt, what the hell were you wearing?), and it was nice to see Helen Mirren rack up the awards, even though it got a little boring and we think more people saw Prime Suspect than Elizabeth I. Sure, Dreamgirls won big (Jennifer Hudson is a star - here's more and more confirmation - and Eddie Murphy gave a simple, classy speech), but its director wasn't even nominated. Seeing America Ferrera made us want another Traveling Pants movie (there are four books, of course) and almost made us forget how lame Ryan Seacrest was during the E! Pre-Show (how much fake horndogging can there be?).
