Speech and Language Difficulties (Children)

Language is a fundamental aspect of human interaction, enabling us to express our needs, thoughts, feelings and experiences. As a caregiver, you play a crucial role in nurturing your child's ability to communicate.

The rate of speech and language development varies among children and is influenced by several factors, including:

  • Inherent ability to learn language
  • Hearing ability
  • Motor skills, such as walking, jumping, writing and self-feeding
  • The Frequency and quality of language exposure

If a child's speech and language development is slower than usual, it may indicate a speech or language difficulty.
