Worried Parent and SLT
  • Parent: “When should we be worried about our child’s communication development?”
  • SLT: “When your child cannot clearly express their thoughts, feelings or needs to you or anyone else.”
  • Parent: “Are there any other signs that could show they have a problem with communication?”
  • SLT: “If they are avoiding school, play or any situations and if they are getting into trouble because of their communication difficulties, then it is time to see an SLT.”
