Information for New Parents
New to speak™ or new to speech or coordination issues?
Starting a new supplementation program can be somewhat overwhelming for parents and children alike. At SpeechNutrients we strive to help new parents by giving them the tools necessary to ensure their child’s smooth transition into their supplementation routine.
We’ve been thrilled with the benefits many families have reported within a few days, and we’ve been just as thrilled with the ones that take a little longer to achieve. All children are different and respond in different ways and at different times. Just remember to stick with it!
|Vitamin E (Alpha)||500 IU|
|Vitamin E (Gamma)||200 mg|
|Vitamin K1||2 mg|
If your child isn't currently taking omega-3 fish oil or vitamin E supplements: Start with one (1) capsule of SpeechNutrients speak™ daily. After two (2) weeks, increase the serving to two (2) capsules daily until reaching a serving of four (4) capsules per day over eight (8) weeks. If you believe that your child will benefit from additional supplementation beyond four (4) capsules, regardless of previous omega-3 supplementation, check with your healthcare practitioner (e.g.: Medical Doctor, Registered Dietitian, Certified Clinical Nutritionist, Naturopathic Doctor, Doctor of Osteopathy).
What to expect: Emotional outbursts and transient moods are common when children begin supplementing with omega-3 supplements. Each child is different. If your child has been 'very compliant', a change in this behavior may be considered normal. Parents have reported the "Tasmanian Devil" effect, where children become very active, oppositional but in time (2-3 weeks) there is rebalance.
Some children may experience loose stools when they begin supplementation with oil-based capsules; this usually resolves quickly (great for constipated kids!)
Moodiness, irritability, and emotional outbursts are commonly reported in children during the first few days/weeks of omega-3 supplementation; however, this usually comes with increased babbling, imitation of sounds, and eventually words to sentences.
The best, easiest and most cost effective way to begin your child on speak supplementation program is by purchasing our SpeechNutrients speak™ Starter Kit. It provides everything you need from frequently asked questions and proper dosage information to daily/weekly logs for ease of sharing your child's progress.
