Our clients often ask us:
Do speech and language delays affect learning?
Speech and language skills are crucial for learning and success in school. Learning takes place through communication. Language is the basis of communication. Reading, writing, gesturing, listening, and speaking are all forms of language. In order for a child to succeed in school, they must be able to communicate with their teachers, peers, and families.
A child with speech and language delay usually does not perform tasks at grade level. They may have problems understanding language and using language to communicate. They may also struggle with reading and writing. Often, children with language delays misunderstand social cues, avoid interacting with others, and do not enjoy school.
Language delays and speech difficulties are common problems. They are found in 5-10% of preschool children. Problems can occur in the following areas:
At the Speech Specialists, we are big advocates for early intervention when it comes to speech therapy. When children are young, their brains are highly receptive to language development and therefore make speech therapy much more effective. Early intervention also ensures that any such symptoms do not worsen over time since they are addressed immediately. This way we can minimize the daily impact on a child’s life with regard to issues with language or speaking. Feel free to call us so that we can help you in the best possible way.
