Helpline in Focus: Speech development

Posted in Feed Play Love.
This week on Helpline in Focus, speech pathologist Sonia Bestulic answers all your questions about your child’s speech development, including:
  • Whether growing up with several languages in the home will delay a child’s speech development
  • If it’s normal for a 2-and-a-half-year-old to only string two words together (and how to encourage better speech)
  • If it’s normal for a 3-year-old to replace ‘g’ and ‘k’ with ‘d’ or ‘t’
  • If a 2-year-old should be speaking more than several words, and whether staying at home all day with only one other person may be holding her back
  • Will a 4-year-old grow out of a lisp?
  • How to stop a 5-year-old speaking for their 2-year-old sibling
  • How to help a primary school-aged child to articulate their thoughts
