Speech and language development (from 12 to 24 months)

The aim of thispage is to provide parents and carers with information and advice to help their child’s speech and language to develop. The leaflet explains the normal stages of early speech and language development between 12 and 24 months. It aims to help you understand the stage at which your child is functioning and the activities you can do to stimulate and encourage further development.

We recommend you speak to your child’s speech and language therapist if you have any questions or concerns regarding any of the information enclosed.

When children are admitted to Koala Ward or attend as outpatients, they may be seen by a number of other professionals as well as by the doctors and nurses. All of us work together as the Great Ormond Street Hospital neurology multidisciplinary team.
