What can you do?
If you feel your child is showing any of these symptoms, you can contact a Speech-Language Pathologist in your area and request an evaluation.
Tip from our therapist:
Focus on communication, talk with your child daily, sing songs, and encourage imitation of sounds and gestures.
Read to your child! Start this when they are babies.
Use everyday situations.
To build on your Childs speech and language, talk your way through the day.
