Getting Started with Late Talkers Therapy

During your toddler's early development, they will undergo a range of cognitive changes that will change the way in which they communicate. This development in communication is crucial to your child's development, and will ensure success later in their life. One of the most important skills they will develop is the ability to speak.

While mistakes are natural while your child is learning how to speak, if such mistakes become common and making your child fall behind others of the same age, it may be possible that your child is in need of late talkers' therapy.

Depending on the child, some may grow out of their delayed speech and language skills. On the other hand, others will require speech therapy. There is no telling way which path your child will take. It is always a smart decision to stay on top of your child's speech and language difficulties, instead of waiting to see if you think there might be a problem.

At SpeechAim, we will talk to you about any concerns and assess how well your child speaks, uses gestures and understands language.

Sign's your child may need late talkers' therapy

Here are some of the signs you should look out for:

  • A lack of understanding regarding language when interacting with other children,
  • 'Strange' or otherwise inappropriate play,
  • You are having difficulty understanding your child,
  • Your child stutters
  • Other children are teasing your child for the way in which they speak,
  • Uses very few words in their sentences,
  • Your child cannot structure a sentence (for example to ask for a drink).

If your child has shown multiple of these signs on various occasions, we would advise that you look into scheduling an initial assessment.

Late Talkers Therapy Sessions

It is important to note, that every child develops at their own rate. Some children may take considerably longer to develop speaking abilities, while others may learn how to speak very quickly. As each child is unique in their own cognitive development, it is no cause for concern when your child is late to speak.

When your child is still very small, such signs may be hard to judge. As a result, we advise that you book a consultation session, in which our professional staff will provide your child with an assessment that will determine whether or not they are in need to late talker's therapy.

Once we evaluate your child, our specialized staff will design a specially tailored program for your child. We will work with you directly, to improve your child's speech and have them talking like normal in no time.
