(Answers to FAQs are for informational purposes only.)
As a speech-language pathologist, I love to learn and talk about communication development. When I meet someone and they find out I’m a speech therapist, it is very common for them to either (a) share that they had speech therapy as a kid or (b) ask a question about their own child’s speech and language development. I consider it a privilege to share the knowledge I have gained to ease their mind or help them know where to seek the best help for their child.
Several years ago, I began receiving questions over email. Below you will find links to videos of frequently asked questions (FAQs) from parents about communication development. New videos will be posted as soon as possible. If you have a question for me, click here.
