(Paediatric ENT) Procedures
Children with delay in speech development should be seen by the team of doctors, audiologist and speech therapists. While we understand that children develop at their own different times, yet there are many medical conditions that can contribute to delay in speech and language development. These include : hearing loss (which may even be partial and go unnoticed) , problems with mouth and tongue affecting their movement , learning disorders , developmental issues.
It is advisable that in such a situation the child should be seen at least once by the team at an early age , to rule of these causes. As the brain learns language best in the early years of childhood , early treatment of these problems will eventually lead to better speech and language development.
