How Speech Develops

Speech & Language 

Children begin communicating early and their speech and language skills grow as they reach different ages and milestones.

Parents are often the first to know if there are concerns with their child’s speech and communication skills. Look at this Speech and Language Checklist to see if your child talks and communicates like other children who are the same age.

Don’t wait to get help! It’s never too soon—and your child is never too young—to be seen by a speech-language pathologist.

If you are worried about your child’s communication skills, call Here4Kids at 1-844-4KIDS-11 (1-844-454-3711). A service coordinator will talk to you about your child’s speech and language skills.
