How do I know if I should be concerned about my child’s speech and language development?

 

Developmental milestones show some of the skills that mark the progress of young children as they learn to communicate. The Alberta College of Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists (ACSLPA) provides a collection of information sheets and links on many issues associated with Speech-Language Pathology.  Developmental milestones are linked below.  If your child is not meeting one or more of these milestones, please feel free to contact me for a consultation.
