Speech Therapy

Therapy is the act of providing speech, language and auditory processing skills in the form of structured sessions. Therapists are dually qualified professionals that assess and treat special needs, oral sensation, oral motor skills, voice, phonology, articulation, programming, speech, fluency, early intervention, language concerns (pre-school and school-age langauge, vocabulary and grammar) and feeding disorders. Therapy focuses on enhancing ones skills and minimizing the impact of deficits. It is the act of ensuring these skills can be used in a setting to display one’s full potential. Therapy durations vary according to diagnosis, stimulability, individuality and efforts.
