you can Identify The Signs of early communication disorders

I am excited to be partnering with the American Speech-Language Hearing Association's (ASHA) campaign to educate the public about the warning sings of communication disorders. Did you know that speech, language and hearing disorders are treatable? Early detection is a major contributor to speedier recoveries, shortened treatment periods and reduced costs for individuals and society alike.

For people with communication disorders, those closet to them are often their biggest asset. Unfortunately, many parents and caregivers are unable to identify the warning signs or they dismiss them too readily.

A recent poll of speech-language pathologists and audiologists by ASHA reported significant parental delays in getting help for children with communication difficulties. This is just one example of the missed opportunities that commonly occur with communication disorders.

Over the next few blog posts I'll be describing some of the Signs to look for. In the mean time, do you have any questions? I'd be happy to try to address them in a post for you. It is my deepest desire to help families know what to look for and know how to help their children develop speech and language skills.
