The American Speech, Language and Hearing Association says that by age two, kids should be responding to commands and interacting with others.
But often times, kids in pre-school are still quiet and hard to understand...so, we asked a licensed speech and hearing pathologist...is there an age guideline for that?
"Parents who are around them and used to listening to them all the time, should be able to understand 100% of what their kids are saying, otherwise, if not, then you might want to take a look into calling a speech pathologist," says Carolyn Perry, speech pathologist, TTUHSC.
Perry says you should start searching for a speech pathologist when your child reaches four years of age. She also suggests a coupled of excellent websites for parents.
