Norms are from the Child Development Institute.
Taking a "wait and see" approach is not helpful for your child because each month you wait, the farther behind your child may become.
So what can you do?
Trust your mom-instincts.
Your pediatrician has a medical degree, BUT he or she does not have a Masters Degree in Communication Disorders. Pediatricians do not have adequate training in communication delays to diagnose communication delays or disorders.
That is why your pediatrician refers you to a certified, licensed Speech-Language Pathologist, like me.
BUT, some pediatricians tell parents to "wait and see."
You know your child best.
It breaks my heart when kids don't get the help they need early on.
Your (usually) sweet and silly child has started screaming to get what he wants + he is busting your ear drums.
He doesn't understand the word "No."
You just want someone to SHOW you how to help your child talk.
Simple things you can actually do at home. No fluff. Parents don't have time for fluff. Just give us the action steps, pleeeease!
No special prep or materials needed.
