Speech disorder - 2 year old??

My son has just turned 2 (last saturday) and I have noticed that he cannot pronouce some words correctly. He speaks really well (can put a sentence together with 6/7 words no problem) but he is having trouble with words like orange (puts a ll on the end) & train (starts it with a ch)

Should I be worried about this, or do you think he will grow out of it??

I think that is fairly typical of that age - some of those sounds don't get perfected until they are about 5.

i would ask his teacher/health visitor/doctor
if they have a concern they will pass you on to the right people
