Speech Therapy 

Speech skills are an essential aspect of a child’s overall development, health, learning experiences, self-esteem, and ability to express their basic wants and needs. These skills are also incredibly important to school performance and social interaction. 

Proper development of speech skills requires strength, coordination, postural control, attention, and cognition. In order to communicate, we need say the correct words, with the correct sounds, as well as understand what others are saying to us. As with other skills and milestones, the age at which kids learn language and start talking can vary.  

The human body follows a step by step process, where one area often relies on another to achieve full function.  If a child is not achieving a milestone within a reasonable time frame, it is important to ask questions and seek out guidance right away because the next set of skills is coming up fast. This can be a lot to handle for a parent but we are here to help.
