Science shows when children with speech and language disorders and delays are identified earlier, they make faster progress and have a better chance to catch up to same-aged peers.
Communication is a process that provides neurologic feedback. Children with speech-language disorders and delays are less likely to communicate, and as a result get less of this important feedback. This can result in negative impacts on a child’s interactions, literacy, and confidence.
If a child does not get the intervention early, they will continue to fall more and more behind their peers.
Parents should seek professional support from a speech-language pathologist any time their child shows a delay or difficulty communicating that is negatively impacting their engagement with others or participate in activities.
At Kid Matters, we use gold-standard evaluation measures, and treatment rooted in research to provide the tools children need to increase their functional communication skills and foster continue processing of this critical neurological feedback.
If you are concerned about your child’s speech and language development, use our speech and language guidelines to see if your child is on track. Don’t hesitate to call for a free consultation if you think your child may be behind.
I equip children with the tools needed to increase their speech and language skills so they can reach their full potential socially and academically.
