Improve language and communication skills
Development of language and communication skills is essential. If your child isn’t yet speaking, speech therapy can focus on building skills that encourage speech development. They can help you look at ways to improve communication and give your child a voice using their existing strengths and abilities.
For children who are learning to speak or have acquired speech, speech therapy may focus on building sentence length and structure, improving pronunciation and articulation, increasing comprehension, understanding how and when to use language, reading non-verbal cues and gestures, and so much more.
The role of a speech therapist
Speech therapists are highly trained healthcare professionals. They diagnose and treat a wide range of speech and communication difficulties. Our areas of interest include: autism spectrum disorders, childhood apraxia of speech, expressive and receptive language delays, and feeding and swallowing issues.
Our speech therapists work with you and your child to create a program tailored to your child’s specific needs. They also provide useful tools and exercises so you can work with your child at home to maximize gains.
A team approach
At our centres, your child benefits from having a team of therapists working directly with them. We provide speech therapy, ABA therapy, and occupational therapy all under one roof. Depending on your child’s needs, our therapists work together to optimize your child’s treatment.
