Does my child need speech and language therapy?

Children with mild to severe developmental differences due to known and unknown causes may show significant improvement with speech language therapy intervention. All children develop at different rates but the earlier a challenge is identified and treated, the better the outcome will be for you and your child’s quality of life.
