Though most infants, even newborns, are communicating and interacting socially long before they can use language, parents eagerly await their toddler’s first words--a milestone that usually occurs around the child’s first birthday.
But for Simon, the time for this milestone came and went in silence.
Simon missed other milestones, too. “Everything was late,” Hannah, Simon’s mother told me. “He crawled late, walked at 22 months, no babble…”
Pediatricians, friends, and family may reassure worried parents of a child like Simon that he is simply a “late-bloomer” or that “boys talk later than girls.” But sometimes, there is an underlying root issue that helps to explain the delay.
