How do you know that your child has a delay or dyslexia in speech or hearing?

Hearing and Pronunciation:

The profession of hearing and speech correction has three goals: prevention, examination and treatment.


  • Between one and three years, it is important to remain alert for signs of a language delay at birth.

  • Before twelve months, it should be noted that the reaction is limited to stimulation or is affected by the noise of the surroundings, with limited smiles or babbling.

  • From twelve months to twenty-four months, the child utters his first words and opens up to the language at this age. Starting from the age of eighteen months, his words are enriched and grow gradually, at this stage it is possible to intervene to help the child and direct him to pronounce correctly, such as (using a few gestures to communicate, making slightly different sounds and not trying to repeat them, it will seem as if he understands a little bit what you are saying and focuses attention on sounds or things specific).

  • After three years of age, the main warning signs are (inability to form short, simple sentences, making several very different sounds, not understanding simple questions, wanting to communicate with gestures rather than words).


An examination is conducted for the child to identify the main problem, and this examination has two main objectives, which are to ask the parents a set of questions to get as close as possible to the child's problems and to know when he feels comfortable and when he does not feel that way.

Doing a set of exercises for the child about his habits and assigning points to make the process tangible. A set of these exercises helps us to see his condition and compare it since the first examination and the condition it developed into after the medical taming process, according to the time period and the number of classes.


All the data collected about the child from the beginning and the results reached are identified, compared and the degree of development in his condition is monitored.

Who are the people concerned with the correction of speech and hearing?
Hearing and speech diseases can include different age groups. A child who has lost hearing since birth is automatically speechless, so he visits many specialists, including those who specialize in ear diseases. When he visits a speech therapist, he identifies the problem and uses a stethoscope at ear level to start the process of medical taming.

  • Children who suffer from academic problems (the inability to read, the inability to write, or they have a delay in writing and reading).
At the appropriate age, a hearing aid is used or other means are used to treat the hearing process.

  • As for the elderly, because of the way of life, especially those who suffer from high blood pressure and suffer from strokes that cause the inability to speak permanently or to speak in a stuttering and incomprehensible way... In this case, the specialist intervenes in the correction of speech. Parkinson's and Alzheimer's, i.e. at an advanced age

What do parents advise?

He advises parents to do two basic things, which are play between parents and the child. It is very important to join him in his interest in the thing by adding some words. Draw his attention to things by making signs and making comments. And monitoring it to identify the stimuli that make it interact more. Which generates an openness to the body and its movement. The guardian must differentiate between a child who does not know and a child who is unable to learn.

The child who does not know can be helped with remedial lessons and a solution can be found, but the child who is not able to learn is sick and should not wait for the exams to train him or prepare a teaching system during the year, because his condition cannot progress if there is no cerebral stimulation for that. It is necessary to play with the child during learning, because he should not impose something on him without loving him, as he will not learn in this way at all, and this is not the desired goal of the learning process.
