Good communication is important in achieving success in life.

Speech and Language Therapists (SLT) help treat children and adults with communication, voice, or feeding disorders. This includes speech (clear articulation), using language to socialize and interact, speaking fluently without stuttering, as well as using a strong, healthy voice.

Children with Verbal Dyspraxia may present as being a ‘late talker’, have extremely limited speech sounds, reduced or absent babbling as a toddler. Children on the Autism spectrum may have difficulties with experience sharing, requesting or perspective taking (i.e. knowing what the other person wants). Speech therapy is effective in helping these children develop their speech through multi-sensory stimulation techniques, or to build their social communication skills through uniquely tailored goals.
