Speech and Language
By the time most children are four years of age, they can speak and communicate well with others. However, some children have difficulty developing their speech and language skills. This puts them at risk for failure in school, which could lead to further problems later in life. As parents, we all want the best for our children.
Make sure your baby, toddler or preschooler’s speech skills are on track by calling the Health Unit toll-free at 1-866-888-4577 and having your child’s speech skills checked over the phone. For more information, call your local health unit, a partner in the District Preschool Speech and Language Program.
