 I'm concerned about my child's speech!   Should they be able to say 's' yet?
When can they start therapy?

I've been hearing these questions a lot lately - and it's wonderful. It's great that parents are proactively finding the information they need to support their children's communication development. Sometimes it is clear that a child needs Speech Pathology - they are about to start school and do not sound like their friends do, or they become frustrated and bite, scream or hit others when they have not been understood. Other times, it can be harder to know if a child will 'get better on their own', or if there is a need for assessment and therapy.

I hope this newsletter will clear the confusion. It includes information on:
  • The ages that speech sounds develop
  •  The error patterns that some children may use when speaking (and when they should be gone by)-
  • When (and how) to refer to a Speech Pathologist

As always, do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions, or concerns.
