From the Paper:

"This article suggests that in children who are late talkers researchers advocate the 'watch and see' method. There is a lot of controversy over this method as it is time consuming and if there is a severe language development issue then the child has less of a chance of developing a normal communicative relationship with others if steps are not taken in preventative measures soon enough. This article developed its research with African America toddlers who come from poor families. The article states that the effect of lower class income and the subsequent culture have developmental effects on children, especially in regards to language skills (7)."
