Does Your Child Need Help Speaking More Clearly?
Free Pediatric Speech Screenings offered at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago at Silver Cross Hospital
New Lenox, IL (April 16, 2015)— Are you concerned that your toddler struggles to pronounce words and has difficulties putting sentences together? Well, it’s completely normal for children from 18 months to 3 years to mispronounce many words. However, what you want to watch for is that your toddler's speech is improving over time — by age 3, most of what your child says should be understandable. Speech and language problems are estimated to occur in about 6 out of 100 children. Since communication disorders affect 14 million Americans, the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association is raising awareness through its "Early Intervention Counts” campaign in May. Silver Cross Hospital supports this initiative by providing free pediatric speech screenings in hopes that more young people get life-altering treatment in order to effectively communicate.
