Waiting List – Speech Therapy
About Speech Therapy
Speech therapists diagnose and treat communication disorders, including difficulties with speaking, listening, understanding language, reading, writing, social skills, stuttering, and using voice.
They work with people who have difficulty communicating because of developmental delays, stroke, brain injuries, learning disability, intellectual disability, cerebral palsy, autism, dementia, and hearing loss, as well as other problems that can affect speech and language. People who experience difficulties swallowing food and drinking safely can also be helped by a speech pathologist.
Children might need speech-language therapy for many reasons, including hearing impairments, cognitive (intellectual, thinking) or other developmental delays, or weak oral muscles.
The goals of speech therapy include improving pronunciation, strengthening the muscles used in speech, and learning to speak correctly. Our speech therapists work in a client-centred creative way with their clients using the power of play to practice positive communication, articulation, and speech skills.
Suitable for children and teens.
