Information about Speech and Language Therapy
Speech and Language therapists provide help with difficulties in communication. Speech and Language therapists can also help with feeding /swallowing issues. Speech and language therapists are focused on empowering parents and children to reach their full potential and reduce these difficulties.
What kind of communication difficulties might occur?
- Speech may develop late and there may be pronunciation difficulties
- Children may have difficulty understanding Language which can lead to frustration and affect self-esteem
- Following directions from a teacher or a parent might be something a child struggles with.
- Reading and Writing difficulties sometimes associated with Dyslexia
- Expressing thoughts in words may be difficult
- Selective Mutism
Our Assess My Child service works with a range of conditions, which affect children’s communication skills, social skills and sometimes feeding/diet. Here are a few examples: –
- Autism Spectrum Disorders /Conditions
- Communication difficulties associated with Post-traumatic stress
- Cerebral Palsy
- Speech delay/disorder
- Impact of Cleft Lip / Palate
We are dedicated to helping children express themselves to the best of their ability. We know how communication difficulties can deeply affect children’s feelings, behaviours and self-esteem. This in turn can create stress for parents and families.
At Key Assets Consulting, our team is here to support you and your child in a welcoming and playful environment. We concentrate on ABILITY and helping every child find their VOICE!
