With younger children, delays in communication can be hard to identify or judge.  All children develop at different rates and, for some, moving from babbling to full, well-pronounced and grammatically correct sentences can be a slow and challenging process that takes time.  Typically, the speech of 3-year-old children is understood by most people (both familiar and unfamiliar to the child).  Also, most 3-year-old children can understand and respond to what other people say to them.
