Speech therapy

Speech Therapy.. Making a difference, one word at a time..

We help them with planned activities to practice to reinforce the skills a child is learning. Speech therapy can help children learn to speak more clearly. This helps them build confidence and move away from any kind of frustration that may have built in due to their speaking issues. Children who have language issues can benefit socially, emotionally, mentally and academically from speech therapy. Another facet of Speech therapy is that it can help improve communication skills in kids with language issues. In fact, a Speech Therapist is also called as a Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP).

SLPs can help with:

  • Fluency problems: Trouble with the flow of speech, such as stuttering.
  • Resonance or voice problems: Trouble with voice pitch, volume and quality.
  • Articulation problems: Not able to speak clearly and making errors in sounds.

The issues handled by SLP’s are:

  • Expressive language problems: Trouble speaking, i.e. expressing language
