If you are considering speech therapy for your child, you probably have concerns about her or his speech and language development. The first thing to understand is that children progress differently, so don’t get overly worried if other kids' skills seem to be more advanced.


Check speech and language developmental milestones outlined on the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association's website (

If you still have concerns, I recommend that you discuss developmental milestones with your pediatrician during routine visits or call me at (310) 991 7169 and let's discuss them.
