Speech and Language

definitions

Speech and Language disorders are among the most common disorders in school-aged children. Communication disorders are also treatable and some can even be prevented if identified early.

Over the past few years, Weakley County Schools’ Speech-Language Pathologists have seen an increase in speech and language referrals. After hearing repeated observations and growing concerns, the SLPs created these webpages to provide families background on speech and language milestones; tips to encourage language and speech development at home; community resources; and other informational links.

If you have a concerns about your child’s speech or language, you are encouraged to contact your local school.
