What can cause a speech delay? Problems with the mouth. A speech delay can indicate an issue with the mouth, tongue, or palate.
In a condition called Speech and language disorders. A 3-year-old who can comprehend and nonverbally communicate but can’t say many words may Hearing loss. a delay in these skills can happen for many reasons, including: * problems with a child’s tongue or the roof of his or her mouth, which makes it hard to form sounds and words *. A toddler speech delay occurs when your toddler boy doesn’t develop at the same pace as other toddler boys.
This can result in your child using nonverbal ways to communicate or even not communicating at all. Many things can cause delays in speech and language development. Speech delays in an otherwise normally developing child can sometimes be caused by oral impairments, like problems with the tongue or palate (the roof of the mouth). A short frenulum (the fold beneath the tongue) can limit tongue movement for speech production.
Sometimes toddlers who develop early in other areas (like climbing and jumping and other physical tasks) master language more slowly because they’re so busy concentrating on those other skills. And sometimes children whose parents (or older siblings) are quick to anticipate their needs are slower to speak up, too — because there is less of a need to. Children learn language at different rates, but most follow a general timeline. If your child doesn’t seem to be meeting communication milestones within several weeks of the average, ask her doctor about it. It may be nothing, but if your child is delayed in some way, recognizing and treating the problem early is crucial for developing language and other cognitive skills in the long run.
A language delay is a type of communication disorder. Your child may have a language delay if they don’t meet the language developmental milestones for their age. Many toddlers have speech delays, and sometimes a speech delay is a symptom of something bigger like autism.
I know from experience that it’s often confusing and overwhelming to parents who are on waiting lists for autism evaluations when these waiting lists. Toddlers in a family with older siblings sometimes speak later because brothers and sisters “talk for them.” Research also shows that girls speak earlier than boys. 1 Sometimes, though, speaking late or speech that is unclear can signal a developmental delay or a physical problem. In those cases, your child may benefit from speech therapy.
Sometimes delays may be a warning sign of a more serious problem that could include hearing loss, developmental delay in other areas, or even an autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Language delays in early childhood also could be a sign of a learning problem that may not.
