I've been a little more relaxed about the whole "speech" thing. Everybody told me that my oldest NEEDED speech and he couldn't be understood by others without mom the translator until he was nearly 5. But, he figured it all out. He was just learning at a slower pace than most, but he's now 7, talks fine, can be understood, pronounces things properly etc.

Only you know your child best. If you think there's something that REALLY needs to be attended too immediately, act on it. If not, give your child some time. My oldest learns in spurts. He goes along at the same pace for a long time and then all of a suddenly has HUGE learning boosts where suddenly he knows a ton of things. But, again, he's on his own timetable.
