How does one know if a child has a speech or language disorder? What should one do if the child does? Morristown speech therapist Joanne Summer will be on hand at the Morristown & Morris Township Library on Thursday, Sept. 10, at 7:00 p.m. to help to allay fears and explain possible tactics for children who are finding it difficult to communicate verbally. She will speak on the differences between speech and language, the types of language disorders, the types of speech fluencies and dysfluencies, and what steps a parent can take. The presentation will also provide information on the nature of the services that are available through public and private schools and through private practitioners.
Light refreshments will be served. This program was made possible thanks to funding from the Friends of the Library.
