Speech and Language Development

Is my child’s speech delayed?

A child brings his/her parents so much joy and happiness. To most parents, together with this comes worry. Is my child eating enough? Is she growing enough? Why is she not walking yet? Her brother was saying so much more when he was this age…

This leaflet gives you some pointers on speech and language development and whether your child is moving in the right direction. If your child is not achieving just one item in an age range, do not worry. If there are more ‘no’s than ‘yes’s to the items in an age bracket, then please contact your local speech and language therapist.

We expect all or most skills to be acquired only at the top of the age range.
