Developmental Delays

Developmental milestones are determined by the average age at which children attain each skill. A developmental delay occurs when your child has the delayed achievement of one or more of his/her milestones. Children may also exhibit developmental disorders characterized by very strong "splinter skills" in an area of development while still exhibiting specific gaps or missing skills that should have been developed at a much earlier age. Therapists at Let's Talk are trained in child development and are able to address both delays and disorders in communication, social, fine and gross motor skills. We believe it is important to teach skills in a developmentally appropriate sequence and to fill in "gaps" in development as needed for specific children.
