Get Answers To Common Questions

The first step should be to identify if it’s a speech delay or speech impairment. If it’s a speech delay, the child will catch up in due course of time, maybe when he/she is 6 or 7 years old. In the case of speech impairment, it’s going to be a lifetime. The potential reasons could be a genetic tendency, something that’s part of family history. Hearing problems can also lead to speech delay. The child may not be able to respond because he is not hearing it well. Spectrum Disorder can also be a reason for expression recessive behavior. Deformities in the motor area can be spotted with detailed mouth anatomy. Epilepsy can also be a cause.

Epilepsy is related to the brain and neuropathy is related to nerves. Neuropathy is caused either as a congenital issue or due to malnutrition. Inexact words, there exists no correlation between epilepsy and neuropathy. But they may coexist.
