Speech Therapy to Help Your Child
Express Himself Clearly
Can you not always understand what your child is saying?
Does your child’s teacher tell you she has trouble understanding him?
Do you notice that your child is not as talkative as your other children at his age?
Are you worried that he may have a speech problem?
If so, your child may benefit from speech therapy.
Speech is the most powerful yet natural tool we possess.
But communication – listening, speaking, reading and writing – can be difficult for some people.
Communication problems affect all ages and may take many forms.
Communication problems may have far-reaching and long-lasting consequences.
Speech therapy can have a significant impact on a child’s life – it can enhance her ability to communicate effectively and minimize the potential for difficulties later on.
The causes for speech and language difficulties are not always obvious. However, a speech language pathologist will probably be able to shed light on your particular issue and provide suggestions for improving your or your child’s ability to speak more clearly and enhance your or your child’s communication skills.
Speech language pathologists are trained professionals who can help people with communication problems. Speech language pathologists, also called speech therapists or speech-language therapists, are specialists trained to evaluate and treat persons with disorders that affect their speech, spoken and written language, voice, fluency, cognition (thinking) and swallowing.
The speech language pathologists at Canto Speech Therapy can provide the ‘Power of Speech’ for yourself, your child, or your parent.
Good communication skills enhance self-esteem.
Well-developed communication skills last a lifetime.
