Preschool Speech and Language / Special Education Referrals

If your child is 2 years, 9 months of age or older and you have concerns regarding their speech/language development, you may request an educationally-based academic or speech language evaluation.

Typical Speech Development

This chart shows at what age 90% of children can articulate the English consonants correctly. Vowels are correctly produced by the age of three. All children do not develop at the same time and in the same way, so we cannot expect correct speech from every child in the primary grades.
