Speech/language pathologists for children in Savannah & Pooler

Speech therapy Savannah Memorial Health University Medical Center

speech Savannah /language pathologist Early Detection of Speech and Language Disorders
By Julie Burch, speech/language pathologist @ The Rehabilitation Institute at Memorial University Medical Center.

Does your preschooler’s language skills lag behind his peers or siblings? Does she throw tantrums or get frustrated over an inability to communicate verbally? Do others have trouble understanding your child’s speech?

If you answered yes to any of these, your child may have a speech/language disorder. A certified speech/language pathologist can evaluate your child and recommend a plan of action. Early intervention is the key to preventing difficulties in learning later on.

If your child exhibits any of these red flags, ask your pediatrician for a referral to a speech/language pathologist for further evaluation:

Doesn’t smile or interact with others (birth-3 months)
Makes few sounds (7-12 months)
Doesn’t understand what others say (7 months-2 years)
Doesn’t put words together to make sentences (1-1/2-2 years)
Has trouble playing and talking with other children (2-3 years)
