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.
