COMMUNICATION DELAYS IN CHILDREN2 Communication Delays in Children Developmental delays in children can be a very scary thing for most parents. No one wants to think that their child could possibly have some cognitive disabilities. However, having an understanding of what a developmental delay is and knowing ways to help your child can make a big difference. A developmental delay can be diagnosed if a child doesn’t seem to be meeting certain milestones at an expected point in time ("The 5 Main," n.d., para.1). The most common forms of developmental delays are speech and language ("The 5 Main," n.d., para.3). If detected early enough, some of these disabilities can be corrected. Parents should be aware of the early warning signs and should seek professional help as soon as any significant delays are noted. Some of the signs can be seen in the early stages of life, such as babies, up towards the toddler years. Knowing how to characterize the differences between speech and language disorders and knowing how they affect your child is the first step in helping your child overcome these delays. We will also discuss how a speech language pathologist can help your child along with a few examples to give you a better understanding of their role in the correction of these disorders. To begin our discussion about communication delays, you must first understand how to detect the signs of any lack of communications skills that a baby or child may be displaying. There are a few milestones that a child should meet. However, these are just averages. And not all children learn at the same pace, but they may help someone recognize an early sign of a disorder. For example, if a child does not babble or respond to any loud noises by the time they are 3 to 4 months old, they may have a disorder. They should be able to try and imitate sounds by 4 months and should be responding to sounds by the time they reach 7 months. If a child does

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
