Some children have difficulty learning to talk

4th January 2010

A YouGov survey of 1,015 parents has revealed that nearly one in six children has problems learning to talk.

Nearly 25% of boys have speech difficulties, according to the research. The survey was carried out for England's first "Communication Champion" Jean Gross, who said: "Our ability to communicate is fundamental and underpins everything else. Learning to talk is one of the most important skills a child can master in the 21st Century."
