Reasons why children speak late

Children speak less for both physical and mental reasons. For example-

► Children cannot speak without hearing. So observe whether the child responds to the sound.
► Even if the ear is sore, the child has difficulty hearing and speaking.
► Staring at the screen or spending a lot of time watching mobile, television can also cause a delay in speaking. Moreover, this problem can also be caused by not mixing with people who talk to the child or with someone of the same age.

What you can do

The role of parents is very important in correcting children who are talking late. Parents can help children by:
► Talk to the child more. Allow children to socialize with peers. Reduce mobile, and television viewing time.
► Read short story books. Encourage the child to read too.
► Talk throughout the day. For example, when going to eat, say the name of the food, talk about how you cooked it or where you can buy the food. Talk about what is in the house, and how to clean the house.
