Some people are surprised when they find out that we offer speech therapy sessions for toddler, but at the office of Stacey Miller, SLP, it is our priority to help all children who have learning disabilities, and the sooner that they are identified and addressed, the more the odds of successful outcomes increase. Being proactive is always the best approach.
Speech and language begin developing before a child turns one year old. To be fair, those early attempts are typically just single words. The real rapidity in learning how to speak takes place somewhere between 18 and 24 months. And by the time a child turns two, there should evidence that he or she can string together words to some degree. There is no set time where it can said that all children should reach particular milestones. However, if your child is at least 24 months and has not reached the level that you think she or he should, it makes perfect sense to bring her or him in for an evaluation to find out if there is reason to have our Manhattan speech therapy for toddlers. There are various reasons why your child may be experiencing slower progress in terms of speech. Some examples include some degree of hearing loss, autism, and down syndrome. Fortunately, Stacey has the experience and expertise to help your child with gentle and attentive guidance. Every child is unique, of course, and precise results cannot be guaranteed. Our Manhattan speech therapy for toddlers is based on one-on-one work with your child, rooted in strategies that combine time-tested methods with the most advanced and recently introduced information for promoting optimal results.
