Online Early Intervention Speech Therapy
Children develop at varying rates.—some children learn to speak sooner than others. We help parents and caregivers know what to expect in terms of speech and language development in young children.
Concerned about your child’s communication (or lack of)?
If your toddler is not communicating effectively, it can affect their ability to learn and play with others. For this reason, it’s essential to seek help as soon as the problem is discovered. If you are questioning if your child’s language skills are delayed, then you should talk about it with your pediatrician and seek the assistance of a speech-language pathologist for early intervention therapy.
Parents often think their toddler will outgrow their speech delay and believe it’s okay to have a late-talker.
In some instances, that is possible, but in most situations, that is not the case. Don’t wait to get valuable help for your toddler. The longer you wait to address the speech delay, the more significant the impact on your child’s development and the time commitment needed to improve your child’s language skills.
Through early intervention speech therapy, we can show parents and caregivers what to do and say, how to talk and listen to their toddler.
You don’t need to put aside a particular time to teach new communication skills to your child. Your child can learn new skills from you during all the activities you do together during the week. Therefore, you may be much more likely to see an improvement in daily family functioning.
Traditional speech therapy provides approximately 30-60 minutes of treatment per week. With parent coaching, you will have an opportunity to practice the techniques we teach you 50 times that number per week!
