Speech Therapy Early Intervention
LLA Therapy speech language pathologist, Ashley Hagge, M.A., CCC-SLP, discusses 5 reasons to seek a professional evaluation at the first sign of a speech problem.
2. Prevention of negative behaviors: Children who have a difficult time communication often exhibit behaviors out of frustration.
3. To lay the ground work for compensation strategies: The earlier a child learns to cope with their deficit, the better!
4. Speech errors and language problems are easier to correct when a child is just learning to communicate.
5. Education: The information that a trained and qualified speech therapist possesses is invaluable. You may learn things you never knew about communication. This information may help you formulate a better environment in the home for speech and language.
