Getting Started with Child or Teen Speech Therapy
At SpeechAim, your child's development is our top priority. Cognitive development is crucial for your child and is unique for every baby, toddler and infant. We strive to develop their speech and communication skills with help of our passionate pathologists.
Our services range in a number of specializations, including Language Delay treatment, Apraxia of Speech, reading and writing skills, improved articulation, stuttering management, and accent modification.
While many of these issues are not serious, we aim to spot and identify them as soon as possible. Our specialists will work directly with you and your infant to discover the cause of their language delay or speech impediment, as well as work on ways in which we can resolve it.
During your infant's early growth, a number of cognitive issues may arise as they develop. While many of these issues are not serious, we aim to spot and diagnose them as soon possible. Our specialists will work directly with you and your infant to discover the cause of their speech impediment, as well as work on ways in which we can resolve it.
Signs of early development issues
Here are some of the early signs that your child may be struggling with their cognitive development:
Stuttering: stuttering is when your child has breaks in their speech, repeats a word multiple times, has sound blocks, or prolongs words and sounds. Early intervention can help your child to reduce their stutter and prevent it from persisting in the long term.
Receptive language delays: Receptive language is the way in which your child understands what you are trying to say. Sometimes during early development, your child may struggle to understand specific points that you are trying to make, or the vocabulary itself.
Literacy ability: A child’s literacy ability refers to the way in which your child reads and writes. If you find that your child is struggling to read and write, then early intervention could help them to develop such skills, so that they do not hinder your child’s academics in the future.
Speech Therapy Sessions
Our speech therapy will contain three main steps: assessment, consultation and therapy.
Our initial session will be an assessment for your child. Our assessments are designed to help us grasp a greater understanding of your child’s symptoms. Our initial analysis will help us to better understand what they are currently struggling with, as well as what their current strengths are. By doing this, we can use their strengths in later sessions to improve their weaknesses.
It is important to note that this session is designed to generate as much understanding of your child’s symptoms as possible. There are no ‘correct’ or ‘incorrect’ answers.
Our consultation session will help you to better understand your child’s symptoms, why they occur and what you can do to help them. We will provide you with a range of training tools and tricks that you can use around your household to encourage and improve your child’s cognitive development.
All of our therapy sessions are designed and personalized around your child. In these sessions, we will focus on developing a number of speech skills, each designed to encourage cognitive development at home as well as during our sessions.
All of our therapists are available around the clock whenever you need them. At home, at school or in the workplace. For more information, or to schedule an appointment please contact us below.
