It is not uncommon for children in bilingual and trilingual households to experience a mild language delay while they are learning to process and use different languages. Generally they catch up to monolingual peers without any need for intervention.
From birth it is important for family members to keep languages separate and not to mix languages within the same sentences. Using complete sentences in one language helps children learn each language's individual grammatical rules, sentence structure, rhythm, patterns, etc. It also allows the brain to help categorize the languages in their separate areas, so the different languages do not get jumbled up and mixed together.
Some children learning multiple languages have a harder time developing a solid primary language. When this happens, they may experience a significant language delay compared to peers. We try to provide speech and language therapy services in the child's primary language during the early years.
