Top rated Speech Therapy for Children in Lincoln County NC

Expressive vocabulary delays at 24 months of age increase children’s risk for later speech/language services. (Morgan et al., 2016)

Children with speech and/or language impairments typically display lower reading, mathematics, and behavioral functioning at both the start of kindergarten and throughout elementary school (Harrison, McLeod, Berthelsen, & Walker, 2009; McCormack, Harrison, McLeod, & McAllister, 2011; Morgan, Farkas, Hillemeier, & Maczuga, 2012).

Early intervention enhances the development of children at biological risk for developmental delay(Resnick et al. 1987).

The prevalence of speech sound disorders in young children is 8 to 9 %. By the first grade, roughly 5 percent of children have noticeable speech disorders; the majority of these speech disorders have no known cause. (NIDCD, 2015).

Research suggests that the first 6 months of life are the most crucial to a child’s development of language skills. For a person to become fully competent in any language, exposure must begin as early as possible, preferably before school age. (NIDCD, 2015)

The 6-year-old child typically has a 2,600 word expressive vocabulary (words he or she says), and a receptive vocabulary (words he or she understands) of 20,000–24,000 words. (asha.org)
