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.
Young children learn best from face-to-face interactions and playing, but the reality is they are also exposed to screen-time activities. Screen time does have some benefits when used appropriately with children over two years, but there are risks including speech and language developmental delays.
It’s important that parents and caregivers are familiar with how best to guide their child’s screen time and set limits.
