Parents and Communication Concerns

New findings show many parents have concerns about their child's communication. During a recent survey conducted by the American Speech Language Hearing Association, it shows that 1 in 4 parents have concerns about their child’s communication. At Sound, we always recommend seeking out a hearing, speech and/or language evaluation to gain knowledge on how your child’s communication compares to age matched peers. The assessments are FUN, and are a great way to reduce anxieties around communication, or create a plan if communication skills are behind.
