What should I do if my 3 year old is having difficulty communicating?
First, you may want to have a conversation with your child’s pediatrician to make sure there are no medical issues that may be causing your child the difficulty they are experiencing. Secondly, you may want to consider requesting an evaluation for your child through the Committee on Preschool Special Education through your school district. This evaluation will look at all areas of development and will determine whether your child would qualify for services, like speech therapy. You may contact your local Early Childhood Direction Center for assistance with this process.
