Speech and Language Pathology

June 9, 2021

Speech and Language Pathologists help children to develop communication skills, including understanding what others are saying or communicating and being able to deliver a message using words or other means.

Our Speech Pathologists can help with the following:

  • Speech: helping children to pronounce words so that they can be understood by others.
  • Language:  helping children to develop vocabulary, sentences, recount events, tell stories and use language to learn and connect with others.
  • Comprehension: helping children to understand what is being said around them, to follow instructions and to understand questions and comments.
  • Social language: helping children to connect with others, to play and to exchange thoughts and ideas and have conversations.
  • Stuttering: helping children to speak fluently without stuttering.
  • Voice: assisting voice quality and volume.
  • Reading: Speech pathologists can assist with pre-reading skills (phonological awareness), knowledge of phonics and gleaning meaning from text.
  • Written language: Speech Pathologists can help children with spelling, vocabulary, story writing and expressing ideas in text.
  • Augmentative and alternative communication (AAC): we can support in all areas of AAC including development of natural gesture, Key Word Sign, assessment and training in low-tech and high-tech communication systems.
  • Eating and Swallowing: our speech pathologists can assist children who have difficulty eating and swallowing food or have a limited range of foods they eat.
