Important for parents!!!
Language-spoken disorders are among the most common disorders in childhood. Early diagnosis and initiation of therapy are crucial. The sooner the therapy starts, the results will be better. Very often parents think that these disorders will pass over time and thus lose precious time. Parents should not calm down, because the child is still "little" or "his father also talks late," and so on. Children with language-speaking disorders often experience difficulty in verbal expression resulting in aggression. When to turn to a speech therapist? If your child does not listen and does not respond to the voice of the speaker, or if he does not pronounce separate syllables to the adult (mah-ma, ta-ta-ta, she-it-she, da -a-ba, etc.), i. e. lacking a sticky speech, has not yet spoken or is incomprehensible to others. He experiences difficulty in chewing, lacking eye contact. At pre-school age the following events are observed in the child: - does not orient in the left / right directions; roughly; -not recognize colors; - can not count in the right and reverse order of 1 to 10; - can not dress alone; - there is an incorrect soundtrack; - misses, replaces or distorts sound / sounds: - in-u; k-d; td; c-3-m; ш-ж-ч; p-l; -the voice of the child sounds nasal without the child being creamy or having an allergy; - the child stutters, speaks too quickly or too slowly; - the voice speaks with a hoarse, too quiet or shrill voice; If in your primary school age your child: - has difficulty in writing - replaces similar letters - (o-a, a-h, e-e, etc.). Replaces similar sounds - (n-b; c-h; h-g; c-h); Skips, adds, shifts letters, syllables and words, merges adjacent words, does not follow rows; - reads reading difficulties: - reads slowly (3-10 times slower than the speed of the normal reader), reads bold, replaces similar sounds (c-y, m, y-h) n-a, h-c), misses and adds sounds and syllables, often loses reading space, understands understanding; - experiencing difficulties in mathematics - difficult to read numbers and understanding of mathematical signs; Parents should know that there are no age restrictions. Adult or man at 30 years if there is an incorrect pronunciation of sound "P" and there is a desire to be corrected this may happen. The only difference is that it will take more time than a child, because in adults it is already automated. For quality and effective speech therapy in children and adults, the following factors are important: • Concern and concern on the part of parents and relatives; • desire and motivation of the patient with a speech problem; • Regular visits to speech therapists and active work at home; • Responsibility and activity of parents and / or relatives; • conscious attitude and criticism of the adult to speech disorder and the logopaedic therapy; • Competence and professional qualification of speech therapists; • individual approach, interaction and trust between adult speech therapist; Do not forget!!! Early diagnosis and initiation of correction work will save future concerns. No corrected sound performance may lead to additional difficulties in school.
