There is no such thing as “my child doesn’t talk because he’s stubborn or lazy”. I get so frustrated when parents tell me this. If you have thought about this about your child, or if a teacher, a Pediatrician is telling you this, please re-evaluate your situation.
The truth is……When kids can talk, they DO talk. If child cannot talk, then there is something that is preventing him/her from talking. It could be due to cognitive, neurological or physiological delays. To put your mind at ease or just know what you are dealing with, take your child for a fast screening to a licensed speech/language evaluator. We at first step therapy will put your mind at ease and guide you to the needed services, if there is any need or concern.
