SPEECH THERAPY FOR CHILDREN
Why do kids need speech therapy?
Children begin to communicate at an early age to express their wants and needs. As they grow old, they start using speech and language to engage in a conversation, to participate in the classroom, make friends, read and write.
If a child has difficulty in understanding and expressing his thoughts and ideas, in pronunciation/articulation and social use of language(pragmatics), it will affect the child’s ability to perform well in a variety of situations including school. A speech therapist helps diagnose and provide intervention for various disorders like:
Cognitive or other developmental delays
Cleft lip or cleft palate
ADHD (inattention and hyperactivity)
Articulation problems or unclear speech
Fluency disorders/ stuttering
Feeding problems, picky eaters and swallowing disorders
Traumatic brain injury
Speech and language
assessment and screening

How can parents help in speech therapy?
Parents are key to the success of a child's progress in speech or language therapy.
Kids who finish the program the quickest and with the longest-lasting results are those whose parents were involved.
Ask the therapist what you can do.
For instance, you can help your child do the activities at home that the SLP suggests. This ensures continued progress and carry-over of new skills.
Overcoming a speech or language disorder can take time and effort. So it's important that all family members be patient and understanding with the child.
We offer free consultations and screening!
We are committed to providing the highest quality service to you and your family. The first step begins with an evaluation.
At Sounderic, this process involves interviewing the parent or patient seeking speech therapy treatment to better understand the challenges they have. Evaluations are necessary to determine if a speech or language disorder is present and also to plan appropriate goals for treatment.
Speech disorders can be corrected more easily if detected early. We will help you with every aspect of the process including evaluation, diagnosis, counselling and treatment.
