Late Talkers & Language Delay
Some children between 1-2 years of age take a little longer in the beginning to develop language skills but then catch up to other children their age by the time they are 3-4 years old.
Some late talkers, however, have a persistent language delay or language impairment that follows them year to year. Such children develop language skills at a much slower rate and often continue to lag behind other children in language and academic performance over the long term. A language impairment typically follows into adult hood and can impact on access to post-secondary education and opportunities for work. Scientific evidence shows that children who receive proper treatment fair better than those who do not.
By age 4 a child is expected to be understandable to others 90% of the time. There are different reasons why some children have trouble with speaking clearly. Difficulties with speaking clearly and not being understood can leave a child feeling frustrated and impact on their self confidence. A Speech-language pathologist will start by conducting a speech evaluation to better understand the nature of the child's speech difficulty and develop an individualized treatment plan. Parent education and training is provided to ensure maximal support at home and to facilitate faster progress.
We treat the following:
Reading & Literacy
Children who begin speaking late may continue to lag behind their peers in language and be at greater risk for academic and reading difficulties once they start school.

Difficulty with decoding and reading comprehension impacts on a child's ability understand the school curriculum as well as their performance on written tests and assignments.
