Should I get Phonological Disorder Treatment Now or Wait?
Because developmental speech milestones are only fairly reliable, it might be tempting to imagine that your youngster will “grow out of” a phonological issue. In reality, early intervention can prevent phonological disorders from deteriorating, and there is no harm in seeking treatment early. A basic speech assessment can detect the kind and degree of a phonological issue. If your kid has a phonological issue, professional speech therapy is required, and a trained SLP will build a customized treatment plan for your child.
Among the causes of phonological problems are:
- Hearing loss due to ear infections
- Psychiatric disorders (ex. Cerebral palsy)
- Disabilities (ex. Autism)
- SYNDROMES G (ex. Down syndrome)
