    Each child’s progress is individual and depends on a number of factors. Your child’s individual strengths and difficulties, their ability to engage in therapy, their home/school/care environment, ongoing medical needs, frequency and quality of therapy as well as home practise will all influence your child’s progress.
    Consulting with a speech language pathologist is essential, as they can assist to create a language rich environment for your child to learn and develop their language skills. The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association found that approximately 70% of preschoolers with language disorders showed gains of one or more
    levels on the Spoken Language Production and/or Spoken Language Comprehension Functional Communication Measure (FCM) following speech-language pathology intervention. Your speech language pathologist will work with you to create an intervention plan catering to your child’s individual needs.
