​​Are you concerned about whether your child’s speech and language are on track?
Do you think your child may be struggling with reading or writing?

Childhood language problems are common, but they often go unrecognized. Sometimes they are even confused with other childhood conditions. Signs of childhood language problems vary by age. You can find out what to look for at different ages in our article. It is important to know if your child struggles with speech, language and/or hearing so you can get them the help they need at home and in school.
