Children with developmental delay mostly hit their milestones later than their peers. Delays can be in terms of cognitive, motor, speech, language, or social skills. Symptoms start to appear early but are hard to be identified until the child is 18 to 24 months old. Some of the causes of developmental delay include genetic or hereditary conditions, oral-motor problems, etc.
The parents need to keep track of their child’s milestones because early intervention gives children a huge opportunity to overcome challenges. Many children with developmental delay experience speech and language delay, so Otsimo Speech Therapy is a helpful tool to get started early on.
A guide to using Otsimo Speech Therapy for Developmental Delays:
As parents of a child with developmental delay, things can get difficult in the beginning. Therefore, it is important to establish a routine and practice at least three times a week. We recommend using Otsimo Speech Therapy for 5 to 15 minutes a day.
As the app creates a personalized curriculum for your child, it is important to take the developmental test initially. Depending on your child’s age and needs, you can start with simple categories like “SYL-LA-BLES” or “First Words.” The app repeats the word thrice so the child can understand clearly and repeat it after. Moreover, to make it fun and encouraging for the child, the app offers different filters like cat or bunny after repeating it correctly. The Tongue Acrobatics segment helps your child strengthen his/her oral muscles, which greatly help in producing speech.
It is important to stay consistent and practice regularly. As your child continues to practice, the app adjusts the curriculum according to your child’s progress. Moreover, using parental control, you can easily keep track of your child’s progress. Remember to let your child have fun while learning simultaneously.
