Speech Delays and Sensory Issues

My 2.4 dd has " sensory issues" which are in the process of being dx. She also had GDD, and a 6 month delay in expressive language, and a little less in receptive. She tends to put things in her mouth, and her OT says she might do it because she would need the extra stimulation. My dd also overstuffs her mouth when she eats, which she finds hilarious btw...My question is I wonder if the sensory issues could be related to her delay in speech production. Any one experienced the two and think they are related? If so can anything be done for help? We are on a loong waiting list for speech therapy...
