Early identification of speech and language problems can be overcome through parent and professional intervention.  Parent involvement, education and support are the greatest contributors to success in a child's speech and language development.  Take time to learn more about enhancing your child's speech skills, tips for communicating with your child and the importance of hearing and vision in the development of language.
