Your child’s first words create a very special moment.

They also form the base for your child’s future success at school and in life. From birth, babies begin to communicate with us. Surrounded by words, most young children develop speech and language naturally. Some children, however, take longer to learn communication skills. Left untreated, these children may face life-long problems. Even young children - under two years old - can be helped with speech and language supports. Early intervention reduces the risk of social, educational and emotional challenges that often affect children with speech and language problems.
