These Progress Checkers have been written by speech and language therapists, based on typical developmental milestones
They are intended to be used as a guide only. No diagnosis can be made as children are not seen face to face.
It is possible that concerns may be highlighted when there are not issues with children’s speech and language. If in doubt, check with a health visitor or speech and language therapist. You can also contact the I CAN enquiry service as outlined above.
If your child has just had a birthday, you might want to look at the age-group younger than them. Similarly, if your child is coming up to a birthday, you might want to check the age-group older than them.
