5-8% of Preschool Children Have Speech & Language Delays

Speech and Language Delays

Speech and language delays are quite common in the preschool setting. Here at Sound, we believe strongly in early identification and intervention, especially with the birth-3, and preschool populations. Early intervention helps keep these children on a path to making the most of abilities and skills developed during the early years. Early intervention is also important in supporting and providing advice to parents and siblings of children who might need additional support for clearer communication. #knowthefacts
