#097: There Is Hope for Your Child with Speech and Communication Delays
Show Notes

In this episode, I interview speech and language pathologist, Lenora Edwards, M.S. CCC-SLP, to address the concerns that many of you have regarding your child’s delayed speech and communication skills. Here are some interesting facts about speech delays in children. In an analysis of nearly 2.5 million children younger than 5 years old, researchers at health-analytics company, Truveta, found that for each year of age, first-time speech delay diagnosis increased by an average of 1.6 times between 2018-19 and 2021-22. The highest increase was among 1-year-olds, the researchers said. But why are we seeing this trend? Is it due to the pandemic? Is it due to the increase of screen time as a society? Our special guest helps us have this important conversation as well as provide insights if you suspect your child needs help.
