Therapy for Aphasia & Brain Injury

By age 4 a child is expected to be understandable to others 90% of the time.  There are different reasons why some children have trouble with speaking clearly.  Difficulties with speaking clearly and not being understood can leave a child feeling frustrated and impact on their self confidence.  A Speech-language pathologist will start by conducting a speech evaluation to better understand the nature of the child's speech difficulty and develop an individualized treatment plan.  ​Parent education and training is provided to ensure maximal support at home and to facilitate faster progress.

Reading & Literacy

Children who begin speaking late may continue to lag behind their peers in language and be at greater risk for academic and reading difficulties once they start school.  Challenges with reading are also fairly common among children with average language skills.  Difficulty with decoding and reading comprehension impacts on a child's ability understand the school curriculum as well as their performance on written tests and assignments.

Our licensed Speech Pathologists provide in home language and literacy assessments to identify areas of need and provide customized treatment programs to help children experiencing difficulties with the following:

Nexus Therapy Associates understand the complex and individual needs of children and families effected by Austim Spectrum Disorder and Asperger's Syndrome and work with families, professionals and other team members in the child's best interest.  As therapists our primary objective is to support the development of skills that are most functional, meaningful and relevant to the child or individual in the context of their daily lives.

Some children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and Asperger's Syndrome struggle academically with reading and spelling, in spite of having average or above average intelligence.  Speech Therapists of Vancouver have evidence based literacy programs in place to help children, teens and adults with learning difficulties related to ASD become successful at reading and spelling.  With the proper support in place, many children and individuals with ASD have the potential to lead happy, fulfilling and successful lives.
