Dave and others, if it's any consolation I hardly talked at all until I was about five. Then my parents sent me to a speech therapist after I went to school. I finally caught on to the speech thing and am all right now in my opinion, however some may question this.
I heard an author interviewed a while back who did a study on this and he discovered that many late speakers turned out to be gifted in later life.
