Communication begins at birth with a baby’s first cry, and continues to develop as the baby begins to use different cries, facial expressions, body movements and gestures to communicate. Babies and toddlers develop at different rates, but we do expect them to reach certain milestones by certain ages.

Best clinical practices show that early intervention and involving parents in our assessment and treatment procedures are important for the best outcomes. Children learn to communicate while they interact with others and their world. The goal of our treatment programs is to teach parents and caregivers how to help their children learn to communicate during everyday experiences and routines.
