Business of the Week

 

Speech-language pathologists can address a wide range of communicative challenges, however, sometimes parents are unsure about whether or not their child is meeting their developmental milestones. Perhaps they haven’t yet heard their child say “mama,” or maybe they have, but it was unclear and is inconsistent. While typically-developing children acquire speech and language at differing rates, there are some early speech and language skills that are expected by the age of two. Children should:

– Produce approximately 50 words expressively at 18 months, and 200 words at 24 months

– Begin combining words into simple phrases (i.e., more milk)

– Follow simple 2-step instructions (i.e., put on your shoes and get your bag)
– Imitate new words or sounds
– Respond to simple ‘where’ and yes-and-no questions
– Use simple speech sounds with clarity (P, B, M, N, H, W) but may have difficulty with more complex sounds (K, G, S, L, TH, SH, R, etc.)
– Be understood approximately 50% of the time by others

The ‘wait and see’ approach is not recommended.  If you suspect that your child may have a delay, contact a speech-language pathologist at SpeakAble for a consultation. They will then be able to recommend the best course of action for your child that suits their individual needs.

SpeakAble Speech and Language has now expanded to Montreal!

Tamara Paull is a registered speech language pathologist and the founder of SpeakAble. She grew up in Pierrefonds, QC, and completed her Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology at the University of British Columbia. Tamara moved to Toronto in 2012 to build up her practice which grew into a team of licensed speech-language pathologists and support personnel. She recently moved back home to Montreal and brought SpeakAble down the 401 with her (she still manages the Toronto office remotely)!

Tamara’s passion lies in the pediatric world. Her curiosity in the profession peaked right after high school, when she worked as an ABA therapist with children with autism. Supporting children with autism spectrum disorder, and their families, continues to be her area of interest and specialty as a speech-language pathologist. The clinicians at SpeakAble evaluate and treat children of all ages who present with a wide range of difficulties in the areas of emerging language, articulation, phonology, oral motor skills, fluency, developmental disorders, pragmatics and expressive and receptive language.

SpeakAble provides in-home evaluation and treatment sessions. They recognize that life can be chaotic, leaving us with little valuable family time, let alone time to drive to a speech therapist’s office. Additionally, rapport is quickly built between a clinician and a child when in a comfortable, quiet home environment. A trusting and comfortable relationship can propel the rate of progress. Home visits are beneficial for more reasons than convenience and comfort. They also allow parents and caregivers to be actively involved and participate in the sessions in a natural, non-contrived environment.

If you or someone you know has concerns regarding your child’s speech and/or language, do not hesitate to call SpeakAble for a free phone consultation. A licenced speech-language pathologist will discuss your concerns and determine if an evaluation is recommended at this time.
