When should I hear those sounds?!

As we've made the rounds talking to pediatricians and families about our new private practice, we've had a lot of people ask us about when they should hear certain sounds from their little ones. It's hard to know the difference between words being developmentally appropriate, or as I like to say adorable ("wabbit" for "rabbit") - and when they are delayed. We've put together a parent "cheat sheet" to help you tune in to your child's sounds and know when their mis-articulations might be something to get checked out!

If you have any questions regarding your child's sound development, please do not hesitate to reach out!
