“Help! My child is not talking” can mean different things to different parents and caregivers.
In order to get the right sort of intervention, we have to decide whether we are concerned about our child’s speech or language skills.
Answering questions such as “Does your child use any words?”, “How do they communicate?”, “Are they understandable?”, “Are they able to follow instructions” might help you decide whether your child needs any help or support.
