From Non-Verbal Gestures to Fluent Communication

Late Talker

Andrew was brought to Dynamics Therapy Group by his concerned parents, seeking support for his language development. At 2 and a half years old, he hadn't yet started using words to communicate, relying mainly on gestures in his interactions. This led to challenges expressing himself and his needs, causing occasional frustration, even resulting in incidents of biting and pushing other children at daycare. These behaviors impacted his relationships and social skills there. Concerned about his progress, Andrew's parents decided to seek help from a speech therapist.

Initially, Andrew was reserved during therapy, often communicating through pointing and directing his parents to toys he liked. The speech therapist focused on creating a comfortable, safe space for Andrew and his parents during sessions. Over time, Andrew began attempting the language modeled by the therapist and his parents.

The therapist also collaborated closely with Andrew's parents, offering guidance on supporting his language development at home. They learned techniques to stimulate language and incorporated visual aids into Andrew's daily routines and play.

Through consistent effort, Andrew started using words, phrases, and eventually sentences to communicate. His school teachers noticed a clear improvement in his language abilities. Andrew began expressing himself to both teachers and peers, and incidents of frustration at school decreased significantly.
