What is Speech Therapy?
Speech therapy addresses one of the most critical areas of development; our ability to communicate with others. We know that children can grow and thrive when they have the ability to communicate and interact with others.
Speech therapy can address many specific skills including;
Using language so others can understand your wants and needs
Increasing a person's ability to understand language
Using non-verbal communication to express yourself
Treating pragmatic language challenges such as using language appropriately in social contexts
Helping your child to effectively communicate opens the door for success! Our speech therapists know the confidence that comes from becoming an effective communicator, and empower your child to build their communication skills.
What Does a Speech Therapy Session Look Like?
Most speech therapy sessions look like play, but they are all targeting your child's specific goals. Specific skills are worked with by engaging in play and preferred activities and then practicing those goals in a way that encourages language participation from your child. Speech therapy sessions are often fun for children!
