Posted in Feed Play Love.

This week on Helpline in Focus, author and speech pathologist Sonia Bestulic helps parents understand their child’s speech development. She helps parents with the following scenarios:

  • A two-and-a-half-year-old who has roughly 20 words but rarely connects two
  • Does a three-year-old with new grommets need ongoing support from a speech pathologist?
  • A four-and-a-half-year-old who speaks a lot (and so fast that others can’t always understand him)
  • An almost-five-year-old who can’t pronounce her Ls and Rs
  • A five-year-old who talks a lot (and fast) but also mumbles a lot
  • How to help a child with a speech sound disorder who has just started kindergarten learn to read
  • How many words should a 16-month-old have?
  • Understanding lisps
