For infants, speech therapy takes the form of feeding therapy. If you feel like your child has difficulty eating off a spoon, swallowing, or sucking, speech therapy may be a good option. Working with a speech therapist from early on can set the stage for proper speech once in childhood.
At the age of two, some indicators that your child may need speech therapy are:
Speaking with a stutter. Ability to speak only a small number of words. Issues articulating certain sounds. Limited understanding of simple statements.
