It’s easy to measure accomplishments like crawling, walking or using a spoon to feed for the first time. But what may be more ambiguous and cause parents concern are speech and social issues. In fact, you may not even realize there is a delay until you get together with a same-age peer who is already stringing two or three words together while your child struggles to articulate single words. Or, you may wonder if your child is
exhibiting typical behavior when a peer tries to engage him and you notice that your child is more interested in playing by himself.
Sara Solet, MA CCC-SLP, of Speech Spot will discuss language, speech and social skill milestones by age at the upcoming Friday Parent Discussion Group. She will
also field specific questions you may have about your child in this area.
Connecting for Kids and the Westlake Porter Public Library are co-sponsoring childcare for families during the discussion. To reserve a spot for your child, visit www.connectingforkids.org or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
