Communication is Key!
Speech and language (e.g. Communication skills) is one of life’s most important skills and is learned as infants and toddlers begin to explore, play, interact, imitate and model what they see and hear by others. Speech and language skills are key for preparing your child for social and academic success. Some children though fall behind other children when it comes to talking.
Early Intervention play a key role in intervention as communication delays can impact talking, understanding, play and social skills with others. When a child has difficulty with communication they can show increased frustration and can have increased tantrums or behavioral problems impacting communication growth and peer interactions as well as have implications on reading and future academic success.
