First Words

All children develop at different rates and in the early stages of language development it can be tricky to figure out if your child is late with talking or they will get to it in their own time.

If you any of the list below sounds like your child it is a good idea to see a Speech Language Therapist;


  • Has fewer than 100 words
  • Isn’t consistently joining two words together like “Daddy go” or “ shoes on”
  • Doesn’t imitate actions or words
  • Doesn’t pretend with toys, such as feeding doll or making toy man drive toy car
