What is an isolated speech delay?

I assumed it was a symptom of something, rather than a condition in itself, if that makes sense?

Could anyone clarify?

DS is under investigation and the GP thinks it's a isolated speech delay. What on earth does the 'isolated' part mean?

You know there's Google?

Characterising the pattern of a speech or language delay into isolated, global, or psychiatric related impairment can be helpful in finding its cause. Isolated impairment is when the disorder is limited to language expression or production—for example, stuttering or an articulation disorder.

It means it's not part of a wider pattern of delay eg. To reach motor milestones
