Speech and Language Pathology Services
That Shono Bangladesh Offers

Monitoring childhood milestones is crucial as speech and language difficulties may signal underlying neuro-developmental disorders. Early recognition and intervention are vital, and that’s where Speech and Language Pathology plays a key role. Now, we’ll explore major red flags that may indicate the need for Speech and Language Pathology evaluation and support.

1. Red flags to check for autism spectrum
disorders in your toddlers

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) describes autism as a neuro-developmental illness with chronic difficulties in social interaction and communication as well as constrained, repetitive patterns of behavior, interests, or activities.

  • Children with autism may experience delays in speech and language development as well as a lack of comprehension of meaningful nonverbal communication. If your kid isn’t babbling or using “baby talk” by the time they are 12 months old, if they haven’t said a word by the time they are 16 months old, and if they haven’t used any meaningful two-word phrases by the time they are 2 years old, there may be a problem.
  • Children with autism frequently exhibit a lack of social awareness and interaction interest. For instance, they might not know how to interact with others, look for play or friends, or how to create or maintain connections that are appropriate for their age. They might also appear uninterested in or unaware of those around them.
  • Children with autism may display rigidity, inflexibility, and certain repetitive behaviors, such as: a strong preoccupation with a particular interest, a strong insistence on adhering to a particular pattern, trouble accepting changes in the schedule.
  • Children with some varieties of autism also exhibit sensory hypersensitivity, as evidenced by their resistance to contact and cuddling—your infant won’t reach out to be picked up—as well as their odd responses to light, taste, smell, texture, and sound, as well as their hypersensitivity to loud noise.

2. Red flags to check for attention deficit hyperactivity
disorder in your child

A neuro-developmental disorder known as ADHD is characterized by recurrent patterns of impulsivity, hyperactivity, and inattention that interfere with day-to-day functioning.

Some common symptoms are: Impulsivity, interrupting, difficulty waiting one’s turn, difficulty sitting still, difficulty finishing tasks, difficulty focusing, a high prevalence of “careless mistakes,” daydreaming, inattentiveness, and/or hyperactivity in a variety of settings are some significant adhd symptoms.

3. Red flags to check for Cerebral palsy in your child

A non-progressive brain injury or aberrant brain development that can place before, during, or after birth, or in early childhood, can result in cerebral palsy (CP), a neuro-developmental condition that is defined by poor mobility and posture.

Delays in meeting developmental milestones, such as not sitting by 8 months or not walking by 18 months, seeming too stiff or too floppy (hypotonia), weak arms or legs, fidgety, jerky, or clumsy movements, random, uncontrolled movements, muscle spasms, shaking hands (tremors), and walking on tiptoes are some alarming symptoms.

4. Red flags to check for Developmental Delays in your child

When a child cannot meet certain age-appropriate developmental milestones in comparison to children of the same age, this results in a developmental delay.

  • If the child is not smiling back at the parents by three months (often between six and eight weeks old).
  • If the child is not able to hold their neck steadily by the age of 4 months (average age: 3 months).
  • If the child is not able to sit without support for a brief period by the age of 7 to 8 months (average age: 6 months).
  • If the child is not momentarily supported while standing by the age of 12 to 13 months (average age 12 months).
  • if the child is not able to walk alone by the age of 18 months (often between 13 and 15 months).
  • If the child is not able to speak even one meaningful word by the age of 12 months (often between 10 and 11 months).
  • If you have any doubts about your child’s hearing abilities and believe they are not responding to sound.

Remember your right decision on time impacts the shrinking the gap of developmental delays in many folds.

How SLPs Helps in
The Development of Special Children

Supporting the development of special children is a crucial aspect of Speech and Language Pathology (SLP). The term ‘special needs’ is often used to describe children with disabilities or developmental disorders that impact their physical, cognitive, or emotional functioning. It is essential to recognize the uniqueness of each child, with their strengths and challenges, treating them with utmost respect and dignity, irrespective of labels or diagnoses.

Speech and Language Pathologists (SLPs) play a pivotal role as peer models for special children, guiding parents and caregivers in implementing targeted skills relevant to the child’s daily life. Additionally, they maintain comprehensive clinical documentation, including long-term and short-term goals, tracking the child’s progress after each session using various formats like SOAP and SMART notes. Moreover, SLPs often assist families in understanding hearing aid price and options, offering valuable insights and support in accessing necessary resources.

When working with special children, SLPs employ diverse strategies tailored to each child’s age, utilizing friendly, playful, and natural communication techniques. At Shono Bangladesh, we apply our keen strategies in diagnosis and intervention, ensuring the best possible outcomes for the children we serve.
