Oh my gosh! Same here! My brother didn't talk until he was four! When he went to preschool, his teacher noticed it and it was not normal. Me on the other hand, I could talk when I was nine months, but just because I could talk did not mean I could communicate which is a big difference...

I never heard that my brothers had speech problems, though myself I had.

If I remember right, my brothers speech problem came from some big lump thing under his tongue and they had it surgically removed, so that might have played into it.

My brother had a stutter.. he's deceased now, but my sister has always been 'super cool'. She is still procreating.

One of my siblings had a speech problem when he was younger and the others all have some learning disorder (dislexia, discalculia) and 1 has ADHD.
