Spotting Speech Disorders in Children

Spotting Speech Disorders in Children

Many problems go undetected.
The American Speech Language Hearing Association wants to raise awareness about childhood speech disorders. The group estimates 5 percent of children have a noticeable problem by the time they're in the first grade - and some children haven't been diagnosed.

Speech pathologist Tami Treutlein of SLC Therapy of WNY said speech disorders can be detected when a child is only a year old. Some children develop issues in their second, third or fourth years. She said it's important to know the signs and then seek treatment.
