Typical Language Development at 9 Months
By 9 months your child should…
- Understand “no”
- Distinguish different emotions in the tone of speaker’s voice
- Turn to look at new sounds
- Laugh or squeal when happy
- Use a wider variety of consonants when babbling (usually 3-4)
- Play peek-a-boo
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.
