Speech and/or Language Resources

Speech and language concerns are a common concern for parents. Having a delay with speech and/or language is not a diagnosis of a disability. Early detection and intervention can make a difference. View the Web links provided for additional information and support. The National Institute of Health (NIDCD) states that children vary in their development of speech and language. There is, however, a natural progression or for mastery of these skills for each language. The milestones are identifiable skills that can serve as a guide to normal development.

Typically, simple skills need to be reached before the more complex skills can be learned. There is a general age and time when most children pass through these periods. These milestones help doctors and other health professionals determine when a child may need extra help to learn to speak or to use language.

Early intervention matters. Find out how Early On can help.
