What is a speech therapist?

A speech therapist helps children and adolescents who have language disorders to understand and give directions, ask and answer questions, convey ideas and improve language skills that lead to better communication and academic performance.

When should I seek professional help?

You should seek professional help for your children when you become concerned. Don't delay! If there is a problem, early intervention is important. If there is no problem, you will be relieved of worry.

1. Did you know?

  Speech, language and hearing disorders can limit academic achievement, social adjustment and career advancement. Most people can be helped and taught strategies to cope and help them to communicate more effectively, even if the problem cannot be eliminated.

2. Did you know?

  Children learn their speech sounds by listening to the speech around them. This learning begins very early in life.If children have frequent ear problems during this important listening period, they may fail to learn some speech sounds.

3. Did you know?

  There are expected language behaviours for different ages for eg: by 1 year of age; a child should use one or two words, follow simple requests such as “come here” and understand simple questions such as “where's your shoes?” Children are individuals and do develop at slower or faster rates than expected. What is most important is that the children show continued language growth.

4. Did you know?

  The first years of life are important for learning speech and language. Even mild hearing losses may result in children missing much of speech and language around them. Parents should make sure that their children receive a regular hearing evaluation from an Audiologist, particularly if there is a history of an infection, frequent cold or other respiratory infections or allergies.

5. Did you know?

  Stuttering typically begins at a very early age (usually between 2 & 5 yrs) but will occasionally appear for the first time in a school age child and more rarely in an adult. Most children outgrow their non-fluency, but others will not. The problem of stuttering may be prevented from developing if treated early enough.
