Will Early Language Delay at Age 2-3 Result in Development Problems Later on?

Language delays at age 2-3 can be because of having either verbal comprehension delay or language expression delay, or both.

Based on the results of 4 reviewed studies, having both delays is highly likely to lead to language or reading development problems in later years. However, it is inconclusive whether having only one of the symptoms (either verbal comprehension or language expression) will result in problems later on.
