As speech-language pathologists, we spend a lot of time talking to parents about communication! Parents typically ask us about verbal communication, such as: how many words their child should be saying, how clear should their speech be, and what sounds they should be saying? While verbal communication IS a big part of communication, there are many non-verbal communication skills that are equally as important! These skills are called pre-linguistic skills (also referred to as pre-verbal or pre-language skills), and they need to be mastered before your child can start talking!
