Hi all. My son is now 2 years, 10 months so I thought I'd update in case someone is frantically reading late talker posts like I was.
The short story is... things are ok. He doesn't have apraxia. He just started talking more. By 32 months he was still unclear but was within a normal range language wise (though still below average).
He certainly isn't fabulously clear now - but I think he would probably be described as phonological delayed. He is also tending to omit the little words (a, the) from speech. I am optimistic, though, that he will be caught up by school.
I hope this helps someone. I always discredited the variability of development. I'm pleased I pursued all the avenues for assessment I did but, I guess, most kids really do get there in their own time.
