3 Signs Your Child Has a Language Delay

Do you know a late talker?

Every child acquires speech and language skills at their own rate. However, generally speaking there is a common timetable for when we can expect to see a child reach certain milestones.

About Talkabout

The Talkabout Program is a specialised language service for children who are experiencing a speech and language delay or disorder.

At Telethon Speech & Hearing, we believe all children should be able to express their needs and wants, feelings and thoughts. However, some children may need special encouragement and support to so this.

Talkabout has a team-based approach to helping your child achieve their speech and language goals.

The team includes:

  • Your child and your family
  • Talkabout Teacher and Assistant
  • Speech Pathologist
  • Occupational Therapist
  • Psychologist
  • Family Liaison Officer


Who does Talkabout help?

The Talkabout program is designed for children who have a speech and/or language delay or disorder.

These children often respond successfully to a play-based thematic program like Talkabout, which offers repeated opportunities to experience, explore and discover language and concepts vital for effective learning.

Not all children will be suited to the Talkabout learning environment. An intake interview with a member of the Talkabout team is undertaken prior to enrolment to determine eligibility and appropriateness for the program.
