Speech and Language Therapy
A Speech and Language Therapist works with children who have articulation delays and disorders. The therapist will evaluate each client to determine strengths and weakness, address family concerns and develop an individualised treatment plan appropriate to areas and level of difficulty. Communication difficulties may lead to frustration and challenging behaviours if not treated. It may also affect a child’s confidence and self-esteem.
