Study Says Early Speech-Language Therapies May Benefit Toddlers with Cerebral Palsy, Language Delays

A new study published in the journal Developmental Medicine and Child Neurology suggests that early language intervention is key for children with cerebral palsy. Toddlers with cerebral palsy that are unable to speak may benefit from early speech-language therapy to help overcome difficulties later in life, University of Wisconsin-Madison researchers concluded. The study followed the development of language capacity in 85 boys and girls with cerebral palsy over several years, from the ages of 18 months to 4.5 years. Children with motor speech difficulties participating in the study were found to have a delay of about six months in language comprehension, while children with no motor speech impairments experienced no delays, showing development that was appropriate for their age.
