Speech Services in Toronto
Speech disorders are all too common and can be corrected more easily if detected early. It is very common that these challenges with speaking clearly or even reading are noticed first at school and require the attention of a professional speech therapist. Speech therapy can be done at our clinic or often times in home and can be very effective if sessions are held on a regular schedule. Speech Therapy Works (Speechtherapyworks.ca) is a professional speech therapy company that provides a wide range of speech therapy services in Toronto and the surrounding areas. We will help you with every aspect of the process including evaluation, diagnosis, counselling and treatment. Our team of speech therapists take a team approach, and will consult with patients, parents, teachers, doctors and other healthcare professionals to make sure they design a comprehensive program to help.
Tools & Other Techniques
During our sessions we will suggest other things you can do to help the patient when they are not in a session. These everyday tools can speed the program by providing reinforcement between sessions and helping the patient learn how to correct their issues naturally. Some of these techniques will include word games, apps and other creative, proven strategies for helping the patient along. Speech Therapy Works has a proven track record of helping people of all ages overcome their speech issues; we can help you!
EVALUATION & DIAGNOSIS
The first step in any speech therapy effort begins with an evaluation. This process involves interviewing the person seeking treatment to better understand the challenges they have. This evaluation will be done by trained speech-language pathologists holding a Master’s degree that understand there is a wide range of speech issues and each of them may require a different approach to treat. This diagnosis is done at our clinic or at your home by one of our registered speech-language pathologists to make it less stressful, especially for younger children.
Once the evaluation is complete, a diagnosis will be made and treatment plan will be developed. This diagnosis may include a consultation with other healthcare professionals. The outcome of this diagnosis will determine the course of speech therapy services that will be needed to rectify the problem. Some of the more common issues that are treated using speech therapy include articulation delay, language delay, autism, Down syndrome, learning disability, reading, writing and stuttering. Each of these issues has a very specific treatment that needs to be performed on a regular basis to help improve the patient’s speech.
SPEECH THERAPY TREATMENTS
Regularly scheduled clinic based or in home speech therapy sessions will need to be conducted to put the patient on the road to improvement. A variety of communication disorders including articulation delay, language delay, stuttering, learning disability, autism, down syndrome, aphasia, reading difficulties, concerns with written work and apraxia could be treated by speech therapists at Speech Therapy Works through sessions at our clinic or in-home speech therapy. Our staff can make visits in home as regularly needed to help with the program. The key to improving all of these conditions is regular sessions to reinforce the lessons and techniques needed for improvement.
