Early detection of communication problems is essential to each child’s development, well-being and self-esteem. Children who experience a delay in onset of talking often have difficult to detect middle ear problems, causing hearing loss. They frequently go on to have literacy problems if the underlying language difficulties are not remedied.
If you have a child who has trouble speaking at a developmental level that is right for their age, we can help them develop speech that is clear and understandable.
Skillbuilders offers an extensive and innovative range of contemporary educational toys and learning products for children from 0 – 18 years.
