Identifying the Signs of Communication Disorders

Jamie Putnam, co-founder of Capital Area Speech speaks about identifying the signs of communication disorders and early intervention here.

Children should begin saying words by 12 months old. They should begin combining words by 18-24 months. You should understand most of their speech by age 3. They should not have speech sound errors after age 6-7.

Early intervention has been proven the best outcome for progress. You can find more information on language development, articulation, and early intervention by clicking on the links.

If you have concerns about your child’s speech, please contact a speech pathologist.

The American Speech-Language Hearing Association’s Identify the Signs campaign is a great resource to go to for more information about this topic.
