While there is a range of average when we consider developmental milestones and ages of acquisition, being safe rather than sorry when it comes to early speech and language development can be crucial. From birth to age 3, a child’s brain develops faster than it will at any other point in their lifetime. Countless studies have shown that providing speech and language intervention earlier in a child’s lifetime will result in better outcomes.
If your child is delayed in more than one of these milestones, it may be warranted to inquire with his or her doctor, or seek a professional evaluation with a speech-language pathologist.
Expressable’s mission is to make high-quality speech therapy convenient and affordable. If you have any concerns regarding your child’s speech or language development, determining if they need ongoing therapy won’t cost a fortune. We believe in empowering families to support their child’s communication, and online therapy allows therapists to provide caregiver education and training while families participate in every step of the way.
