I have seen a lot of babies these days who came to see me for various reasons but unrelated to the original issue, they are not talking.
This is possibly due to 2 reasons. Firstly they are not going to nurseries (nurseries were closed due to Covid or parents too afraid to send them to the nursery). Secondly, parents are busy working on laptops and they are not getting enough stimulus to talk. You can’t talk if you can’t hear!
Always good to check that they can hear and if none of the other issues are present as outlined above, try and arrange an appointment to see a Speech & Language Therapist. (SALT)
