A 24-month-old African-American female whom you have followed for routine well child care and a few episodes of otitis media is brought to the office by her mother for a regular well child visit. The mother is concerned that the child's language development seems to be slower than she remembers with her older children.

Which one of the following would be a cause for concern at this age?

1)She is making sentences of only two or three words
2)She is unable to name pictures on a standardized test, such as the Denver Developmental Screening Test
3)She is unable to correctly recognize three of four colors
4)She is unable to give her first and last name
5)Her total vocabulary includes about 40 words
