​​Speech therapy is important for children facing speech issues as it enables them to overcome communication challenges, develop language skills, engage socially, succeed academically, and build self-confidence. It provides them with the tools they need to communicate effectively and participate fully in various aspects of life.

“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: a child should be 75% intelligible to unfamiliar people
  • 4 Years: a 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 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 contact us so that we can help you in the best possible way.

Our goal at Speech Specialists is to provide speech therapy in Scarborough that is not only effective but fun and stimulating for our clients, using evidence-based approaches to treatment. We are dedicated to supporting families and teaching parents the skills they need to help their children become functional communicators.
