Speech Therapy

I work with people of all ages, from babies to adults and prevent, assess, diagnose and treat the following

  • Articulation or phonological disorders (how we say sounds and put sounds together into words)
  • Language disorder (how well we understand what we hear or read and how we use words to tell others what we are thinking)
  • Dyslexia, dyspraxia and auditory processing disorder (how well we read and write. People with speech and language disorders may also have trouble reading, spelling and writing)
  • Social communication (how well we follow rules, like taking turns, how to talk to different people, or how close to stand to someone when talking)
  • Cognitive communication (how well our minds work. Problems may involve memory, attention, problem solving, organization and other thinking skills)
  • Voice (how our voices sound. We may sound hoarse, lose our voices easily, talk too loudly or through our noses, or be unable to make sounds)
  • Stuttering (how well speech flows. Someone who stutters may repeat sounds, like t-t-t-table, use "um" or "uh," or pause a lot when talking. Many young children will go through a time when they stutter)
  • Feeding and swallowing (how well we suck, chew and swallow food and liquid. A swallowing disorder may lead to poor nutrition, weight loss and other health problems)

Speech therapy isn’t a quick fix. It takes hard work over many months or even years. The parent’s involvement, like practicing exercises at home, can make speech therapy more effective.
