Is my child too young for speech and language therapy?
Research shows that early intervention is key to help a child who is late talking or delayed communicating. Children's brains are developing rapidly in the first three years and they are particularly responsive to language and interaction from their parents at a young age. The Hanen website has great information on the importance of early intervention.
At what age should I seek help for my child?
For more information on when to seek help the charity ICAN's Talking Point offers guidance on what to expect at different ages.
