No one likes feeling left out. Imagine going to a party where no one talks to you or trying to order a coffee when you can't communicate what you want. For many people with speech disorders, this is their reality every day. We at the H2 HealthFamily understand the many hurdles that people with speech disorders experience, so we provide solutions like occupational and speech therapy. Speech therapy can help people learn to communicate more effectively, whether they are struggling with a stutter, lisp, or other speech impediment. With over 50 years of experience, our qualified speech therapists will ensure that your condition is taken care of.
The benefits of speech therapy go beyond simply being able to order a coffee; it can also help boost confidence, improve employment prospects, and reduce social anxiety. If you or someone you know is struggling to communicate, don't hesitate to seek out the help of a speech therapist. It could make all the difference in the world.
OUR THERAPISTS ARE EXPERIENCED IN PEDIATRIC AND GERIATRIC DIAGNOSES
We don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all model. This means that we consider every patient as a unique individual. Moreover, our therapists are qualified to treat different age populations separately. Our pediatric speech therapists efficiently and playfully treat various speech conditions. On the other hand, our geriatric speech therapists are equipped to handle the speech disorders of the elderly population.
Our clinicians understand that with age, the challenges associated with speech disorders change. Our teams will use the approach that suits you best.
Children differ from adults in many ways. For example, the normal respiratory rate for children would be considered an abnormally high respiratory rate in adults. Conditions involving speech and communications are similar. We understand the complexities of childhood speech disorders and we strive to cater to all the needs of our pediatric patients.
Our speech therapy exercises and activities vary depending on the disorder, age, and needs of your child. During treatment, we may:
- Interact through different mediums, such as talking and playing while incorporating books, pictures, and other objects to help stimulate language development
- Model correct sounds and syllables during playtime to teach certain sounds
- Provide strategies and ways to incorporate therapy at home
Speech therapy services are tailored according to each patient. Therapy begins with an assessment to determine the unique needs of our patients. Speech therapy includes exercises to help with speech, language, cognitive-communication, and swallowing functions. Our treatment plans are beneficial for medical conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, cancer, or other diseases that create difficulty swallowing and communicating.
