Things to Look Out For

By 3 and a half years old a child should be understood by people outside the family. If not, parents should seek advice from a speech and language therapist.

You should be concerned if:

  • They are struggling to turn ideas into sentences.
  • The language they use is jumbled and difficult to understand.
  • They are unresponsive or slow to follow instructions.
