Your pediatrician can recommend you to a speech-language pathologist or a developmental pediatrician for an evaluation. If the results of the evaluation show that your child does have a difficulty, especially with speech, don’t panic. This means that your child’s development is delayed, but with the help of a professional, she can get the help she needs. The sooner the delay is identified, the better. That way, your child can start therapy sessions immediately.
