Speech and language skills develop from a very early age. However, some children do not develop the early skills they need.
This can be very difficult to spot from an early age. However, you should talk to a GP or health visitor if your child does not:
- Respond to noises by 9 months.
- Point to things they are interested in by 1 year.
- Try to gain your attention by making noises by 1 year. This could be through eye contact, facial expressions or reaching.
