Occupational Therapist 's  Response
just compare your daughter's activity level(hyperactivity) with other child, if you see any difference, consult your occupational therapist and speech therapist. occupational therapist re mediate hyperactivity through energy channelizing activities,
speech therapy stimulate and guide the child to use oral language
hyperactivity: take her to park, make her to play
put her in swimming, skating.
speech: frequent interaction with child, allow the child to listen or watch at rhyms. split the words in to 2 or 3 the teach.
thank you.

Psychiatrist, Child Dr. Hemang M. Shah's  Response
Children can be more active during developmental period.
However for speech part, try to explain name of the object, repear the word several times before you give the object, when she demand by gesture.
This will help her to increase the word capacity which she can use latter on.
Do this on regularbasis.
If you feel there is other areas which are also delayed in development, meet your pediatrician or child psychiatrist.
