English Abstract

This study sheds some light on an issue which may not be known to many in our society. The goal is to specify the most important causes of speech delay in infants. The researcher concentrates on two major causes: Down syndrome, its causes and effects, and hearing problems that contribute to the rise and development of delayed speech. The researcher follows the speech milestones achieved by infants in each stage between birth and twenty four months. This reports when and how the sounds and words are produced by infants to determine what causes delay in speech. Parents’ knowledge helps them test if their infants encounter a certain problem or not with the result that they have the chance to have the problems diagnosed by audiologist, speech pathologist, pediatrician or any other specialist who may intervene as early as possible to treat the problem using many suitable procedures, and training the parents and caregivers follow home procedures that are expected to develop their infants close to the normal. This study adopts data descriptive analytic approach to identify speech milestones. It also uses the comparative method to find out the differences between early speech development and delayed speech among infants between birth and twenty-four months.
