Normal development of speech, language and communication in babies and children
Children go through many stages whilst developing their speech, language and communication.
By having knowledge of the normal development of speech, language and communication and the ages children are expected to reach these certain milestones, it can help us to identify children who are failing to meet these milestones and who may have a speech, language or communication difficulty.
