SPEECH & LANGUAGE

THERAPY

A child may benefit from Speech Therapy if they are unable to produce speech sounds correctly or fluently, or have problems with their voice or resonance. Language disorders occur when a person has trouble understanding others (receptive language), or sharing thoughts, ideas, and feelings (expressive language). We have a very talented team of Speech Therapists who can help treat these communication deficits in your child. 

 
 

If your child has trouble reading and spelling, speech therapy may not seem like the obvious answer. Many people think that speech therapists only work with people who have trouble making certain sounds (articulation) or who have stutters or lisps.

Speech therapists do handle those speech issues. But they also help kids with other kinds of problems with spoken and written language, such as Apraxia, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia and Auditory Processing Disorder. 

WHAT DO WE TREAT?

  • Articulation problems: Not speaking clearly and making errors in sounds.

  • Fluency problems: Trouble with the flow of speech, such as stuttering.

  • Resonance or voice problems: Trouble with voice pitch, volume and quality.

  • Oral feeding problems: Difficulty with eating, swallowing and drooling.

  • Receptive language problems: Trouble understanding (receiving) language.

  • Expressive language problems: Trouble speaking (expressing) language.

  • Pragmatic language problems: Trouble using language in socially appropriate ways.

BENEFITS

OF SPEECH

THERAPY

  • Speech therapy can help kids learn to speak more clearly. This helps them feel more confident and less frustrated about speaking to others. Kids who have language issues can benefit socially, emotionally and academically from speech therapy.

  • For kids with reading issues such as dyslexia, speech therapy can help them hear and distinguish specific sounds in words: the word bat breaks down into b, a, and t sounds. This can improve reading comprehension skills and encourage kids to read.

  • Speech therapy is especially beneficial when kids begin early in life. In one study, 70 percent of preschool kids with language issues who went through speech therapy showed improvement in language skills.
