I get asked many questions by parents. It is part of the service we provide to try to provide answers to those questions. I thought I would write a series of posts containing the more interesting of those questions, so that other people who are experiencing similar difficulties can refer to them.
This is a question I was asked by a mother this morning. -
" Why is my almost 4 year old not talking yet? He makes allot of sounds and trys to say some words, but for the most part he does not any true words. He has been in speech therapy for almost a year but has not showed much improvement. He is a very happy and smart child. He just want talk. I am beginning to think something medical may be the cause. He has seen doctors and has passed hearing screenings. I was wondering if there are any other medical reason that impairs speech."
