Did Einstein have a speech delay?


Answer by  PZ (1206)

Einstein is what professionals refer to as a "late-talking child. " Biographies about his early life vary, but most say he was three or four before he began to talk. Some late-talking children may have developmental or hearing problems. Others, like Einstein, are otherwise developmentally normal or even gifted.

No, but he was slow to speak as a child and his parents became worried, thinking that he might be backward. They took him to a doctor and were reassured. It seems that, even when young, he wished to have his reply clear in his own mind before he spoke.
