DOES YOUR PRESCHOOLER TALK CLEARLY AND IN WHOLE SENTENCES?
Preschoolers need to understand what you say to them. Understanding others' questions and sentences will help them to learn at school.
Have you noticed your child's words being repeated or getting stuck as if there's a stutter? Do you notice they are hoarse or 'breathy'?
Have you been concerned about the way your child pronounces sounds? Preschoolers are busy getting ready for starting school in so many areas of development.
They need to be able to understand others and express themselves, mix with their peers and learn new information. They should be able to speak in complete sentences and sound clear most of the time. At three years they usually answer... What, Who, Where... questions and from around four years, Why and How questions. They still make some mistakes with their grammar. Some children may have a brief phase of stuttering but if it persists or you or your child is worried about their stutter, advice should be sought.
There is a broad range of average development at this age and Fiona's assessment will determine how your child's understanding and talking are progressing.
