Importance of Early Detection

Communication is central to who we are and how we experience life. Having a language disorder can be academically, socially and emotionally devastating to a child. Barriers caused by childhood language disorders can be removed with early diagnosis and treatment.

Early intervention is key to making brain changes that last a lifetime. In the early childhood years, the brain undergoes its most dramatic growth. During this time children acquire the ability to think, speak, learn, reason and relate to others on a social and emotional level. When children are exposed to a variety of words, experiences and sensations, their brains respond by building bridges or synapses.

What we do to stimulate young children in all areas of development influences them forever and is key to their early language development.
