Q:

How can I help my 18 month old improve language skills?  And do you think that having a tv on all the time is not good for improving speaking skills?

I have concerns that my daughter has slow speech development and what can I do to help her.

What the Expert Says:

Hello and thank you for writing to JustAsk!

Here is a link to let you know what is usually expected in the language domain from a toddler.

If you feel that your child is delayed, please consider speaking with your pediatrician or asking for an evaluation by the school district's early intervention team.

Best wishes-
