HOW DOES A CHILD TELL YOU WHAT’S WRONG BEFORE SHE LEARNS HOW TO SPEAK?

At 18 months, children are expected to use five to 10 words, and 300 words by age 3. So a delay at 18 months that goes undetected will have adverse effects on later development. That’s why ACCESS provides Early Intervention Early Childhood Therapy. With neurodevelopmental therapy techniques, coordination and phonation, and training in vision and learning orientation, your child can continue to reach those crucial milestones. Your child may be eligible for state and/or federal funding for medical expenses. Let us help you find which option is best for you. 501-217-8600
