If you don't find the answer to your question here, please contact Bridges and we will get back to you. Our goal is to help you enhance your child's communication.
How do I know my child needs speech or language therapy?
An initial indicator of a child needing therapy includes late talking. Children begin using words at one and by two years are combining words into short phrases and sentences. If you find you are always repeating yourself, asking lots of questions, translating for family members, or your child is frustrated when they try to communicate it may signal a delay in your child's development. Pediatricians can also lend insight. When in doubt, ask a speech language pathologist
