Mehreen Kakwan, speech pathologist and author of Billy Gets Talking, will discuss early childhood language development and issues that could drive a parent to seek out a specialist for a speech-language evaluation. She will focus on early speech and language milestones for children between the ages of 1 to 4 years old, sharing techniques for encouraging receptive and expressive language development. She will also touch on bilingualism and certain disorders such as childhood apraxia and autism as they relate to language. A discussion will follow the presentation.
