Babies Are Saying Less Since the Pandemic: Why That's Concerning 04/10/2022

Babies Are Saying Less Since the Pandemic: Why That's Concerning

We’ve seen our toddler population double within the past month.

If you or someone you know is concerned about their child’s development, reach out for a consult or evaluation today.

We are also hosting a parent and child class on Friday afternoons this summer. This is a great opportunity to target language, social skills and education.

Call us for more information at 972-665-8610 or email at [email protected]

We would love to have you this summer. ❤️

Babies Are Saying Less Since the Pandemic: Why That's Concerning Children born in the pandemic have heard fewer words and conversations. Their language development has suffered.

5 Quick Signs that your toddler may benefit from speech therapy services!

1) Stuttering:
At first glance, a stuttering toddler doesn’t seem abnormal. After all, they are still learning to speak. Stuttering becomes an issue when your child doesn’t outgrow it at six years old. We also note that if you have a family member that has fluency difficulties then keeping a close eye on it is very helpful.

2) Intelligibility:
At two years old, the child begins to say 50% of recognizable words. At three years, the child is approximately 75% intelligible. We do not expect them to be perfect speakers yet, but we encourage you to check out their speech if they are hard to understand

3) Play with Friends:
We have seen a lot of little friends having difficulty with playing with others. Our COVID babies have not had all of the experience that we would love to see. We are highly encouraging families to seek play groups and therapy groups with others for more opportunities.

4) Following Directions:
If your child does not turn around when his/her name is called or when you say simple things like "Give it to me”. Toddlers should also understand prepositions like under, over, or on. Your toddler should be able to point to objects in story books when asked a simple “what” or “where” question (“Where is the dog?”).

5) Small number of words used
Children who are 18 months should be using around 5 words, by two years of age they should be using at least 50 words and using at least 1-2 words in a sentence. By three years of age, they should have at least 1,000 words and using 3-4 words in a sentences.

Want a spin on an oldie? Old McDonald's Things that Go will help give you a whole new look on the classic.

We all know that Old McDonald has the collection of animals but did you know he was an avid transportation collector?

This book is a great one for talking about the functions of each vehicle. Airplanes fly, Tractors Mow. You can even add to the story with the predicable rhyme.

Our staff is always welcomed with this experience. Why?! Seems like a cruel experiment?!?
Well several years ago I went to a training on access and seating. That first day I was in tears, over stimulated and not even sure I wanted to come back. They strapped us to chairs, placed rolled up rags under legs, arms, and our bottoms so we could have the experience of positioning that our clients do. It was a game changer for me. Think about how many movements you make in one sitting… we are constantly repositioning ourselves to find a new comfort. A lot of the time we fix this with a new strap or padding and then ask them do crazy things.

I gave up in that training… can you imagine what your client/child/parent feels like?!
