Our child does not speak

Our child does not speak!

Every year more and more parents seek help from a speech therapist.
"Our child does not speak!"With these words, they come to the reception of the mother of 2-3-year-old children.

Is it necessary to beat the alarm in this case, or can you “let everything go to chance”?

Your child is in his third year, but he does not speak. Parents often blame it on age, on the fact that the child is a boy, and the boys begin to talk later, on the fact that the mother and father of the baby began to speak quite late. Ancestral predisposition to delayed speech development does exist, but, whether this is the main reason, only a specialist can determine.

"Talk" - calm around the mother of the little boy. And they cite as an example the cases of their nephews, children, grandchildren, who began to chatter heavily only at the age of three. So, really, maybe, but not always.

Sometimes parents can not adequately assess how well the child speaks.

• Delayed speech development,As a rule, the result of the problems that the mother and the future man had during pregnancy, childbirth, or immediately after them.

• Delayed speech developmentcan be a harbinger of serious diagnoses, for example, motor and sensorimotor alalia, various forms of dysarthria, general speech underdevelopment.

The main causes of delayed speech development- this is damage to the nervous system.

1. Hypoxia- this is an insufficient supply of placenta and fetus with oxygen.
2. Birth injury- This is local damage to the fetus, caused by mechanical action directly on the fetus during labor.

Causes of fetal hypoxia:
- heart defects in the mother;
- bronchitis associated with smoking during pregnancy;
- early toxicosis;
- Pathology of the umbilical cord;
- anemia in a pregnant woman.

As a result of hypoxia, chronic placental insufficiency develops, and the fetus is already significantly disrupted ripening.

As a result of a birth injuryinsufficiency of cerebral circulation occurs, therefore, the brain functions are "upset". As a result, those structures that are responsible for speech, attention, behavior, and emotions suffer.

Possible causes of delayed speech development:
• asphyxia;
• intrauterine infection or infection in the first weeks of a baby's life;
• surgical operations up to 3 years;
• blood transfusions, blood problems in the newborn;
• violation of growth and development in the first year of life;
• “prolonged zolka” (high levels of bilirubin adversely affect the brain, hearing, vision, nervous system);
• hearing problems;
• mental retardation;
• traumatic brain injury; often fell; seriously ill in the first years of life;
• Someone from the relatives had mental illness, speech problems.

The delay in speech development can be observed in case of various mental traumas (experience in connection with separation from close people, a long-term traumatic situation in the family). Also, delayed speech development can be observed in a child whose parents are “super-caring.” Moms and dads are ready to do everything for the baby themselves: even talk. After all, a child’s speech appears just to convey to others his desires and demands. And these children have no incentive to start talking. And so they understand it from the very beginning!

Sometimes there can be just the opposite reason for a long silence: parents cannot afford to sit on maternity leave, they go to work early.Mom has no time to study with a baby, read books, talk, play, walk, sing songs - that is, stimulate speech. And, having returned from work, they prefer to watch news, movies, listen to music ... So, instead of mom and dad, the child’s main “source” of information is television. And the latter blocks the attention, overloads the brain of the child.

- If aA 2-year-old child owns only a dozen babbled words, cannot build phrases, can not show two or three words in the picture (doesn’t show a bear, forest, car, doll in the picture) ...

- If aat the age of 3, the child does not answer the simplest questions: “who?”, “where?”, does not build a phrase of 3-4 words, confuses the notion “top” - “bottom”, cannot execute two commands in succession ( give it to me! ”) ...

These are alarming signals that should alert parents. Here, without the help of a specialist can not do.

Classes should start as early as possible.Unfortunately, the parents are waiting for the child to be 3 years old, and he will speak himself. Very rarely, these expectations are met. Missed catching up is harder.
The lack of help at an early age leads to a number of consequences of speech underdevelopment.You can more effectively manage the process of mastering speech at an early age, when babies should have babbled words.
Corrective assistance is effective when it is sensitive to speech: at the age of 2.5 to 5 years, i.e., during the period when the speech function is actively developing.

Parents! The sooner you pay attention to the level of speech development of your child, the sooner you will help him, the more effective it will be.Spend more time with your child reading books. Tell poems and sing songs together. Call the objects depicted in the pictures and ask the child to show them.
Look at the child when you talk to him. Use pauses and repetitions of words and phrases so that the child can grasp what you have said.

• Describe to the child everything he does, sees and hears using the words available to him. And do the same with your own actions.
• Simulate the sounds you hear, use poems, riddles, games where these sounds are applied.
• Repeat new words and add a few new simple words to your child’s vocabulary every day.
• Give your child assignments using few simple commands.
Preliminary explain to the child what you want to achieve with your instructions.
• Use words denoting a sequence of actions, such as: “first,” “wait,” “after,” “then,” “before”, “at the end” ... During games, use simple commands such as: “lift the ball”, “ throw the ball. "
Help your child classify objects and things around him, describing what they are intended for, what you can do with or cannot do with them.
