Hi fellow moms
I made these two videos as a Speech-Language Pathologist to help other moms out there coping with children with speech and language delays or late talkers. As the mother of a child who was delayed in speaking, I had so many people telling me to "wait and see", including our Pediatrician at the time. As a certified SLP, I knew what I had to do and got to work straight away with early intervention. But it was frustrating trying to convince everyone that I was not imagining the problem.
That was my experience as a mother with years of experience working with children with special needs. I can only imagine how frustrating and confusing it must be to parents who are new to this topic.
I find I get asked the same questions every day, so this is my attempt to answer, hopefully inform and advoate for all those children out there who need help but can't tell us!!
I hope you find these videos useful......
