Speech therapy, language therapy, and orofacial myology are important. About five percent of children have a noticeable speech or language disorder by the time they reach the first grade. At least five percent of newborns have tongue tie or lip tie, which can affect their speech later in life (along with feeding, chewing, or swallowing). In a child that speaks English, it may be obvious that your child has a speech or language disorder or perhaps an orofacial myofunctional disorder (OMD). But what if your child's teacher or caregiver cannot tell because your child speaks Spanish or English is a SECOND language (or vice versa)?
To be clear, learning a second language does NOT cause a speech delay or disorder. Does your child have a language disorder or language difference in either English, Spanish or other? Perhaps your child may have speech difficulties due to issues with orofacial muscles in the cheeks, jaw, lips, or tongue (OMD). This is why you need a qualified bilingual speech therapist who knows how to diagnose and treat OMDs.
