I’m worried that my child may have a speech or language problem but I’m not sure if he/she needs speech therapy. What do I do?
If you have concerns about your child’s speech, you should consider getting an initial assessment by a registered Speech Language Pathologist. While each child is different, a general guideline for speech and communication skills can be looked at to see what is expected from children at different ages.
Consider speech therapy if your child does not meet the following developmental milestones:
- 2 Years: Vocabulary of 50 words or more and should be able to put two words together (Ex: daddy up, more juice, red car, etc.)
- 3 Years: child should be 75% intelligible to unfamiliar people
- 4 Years: child should be able to produce sentences with 4-5 words and should be able to understand and answer Wh- questions. At this stage, their speech should be 100% understood by unfamiliar people.
- By 7 Years, a child should have completely fluent speech and should be able to relate events, express their feelings, and engage in storytelling activities.
At Speech Specialists, our goal is to provide therapy that is fun and stimulating for our clients, using evidence based approaches to treatment. We are dedicated to teaching parents the skills they need to help their child become a functional communicator.
