Onset of canonical babbling was investigated for 1,536 high-risk infants at about 10-months corrected age. Although delays were infrequent, they were often associated with genetic, neurological, anatomical, and/or physiological abnormalities. Over half the cases of late canonical babbling, at the time of discovery, were not associated with prior medical diagnoses. (Author/CR)
