Typical Language Development at 6 Months
By 6 months your child should…
- Make eye contact
- Startle to loud sounds
- Quiet down in response to a voice
- Have a social smile
- Respond to their name
- Make gurgling sounds
- Babble, usually with the same syllable repeated, such as "mamamama"
Every child is unique and develops at their own pace. If your child does not appear to have reached a milestone at an expected age, it does not necessarily mean that he/she will have difficulty with their speech and language development. At Wonderspeak, we offer a comprehensive speech assessment to determine if your child would benefit from a client-focused therapy program that involves you, the parent or guardian, every step of the way. Contact Us if you have any questions regarding your child's speech and language.
Every child has a voice.
Let us help your child find theirs.
