Therapy For Speech Delays: Enhancing Your Child’s Communication Skills for Better Outcome
Speech delays are a common issue among children. There are various causes of speech delays, including hearing loss, developmental disorders, and environmental factors. Early intervention is crucial for children with speech delays. At Kidz Steps Centre, we offer intensive speech program that is customized to meet the distinctive requirements of each child.
What is Speech Program ?
Our speech program included a range of evidence-based techniques and activities to improve a child’s speech and language skills. We customize our goals based on the unique needs of each child and track their progress through regular evaluations.
The benefits of speech program include:
- Improved communication skills
- Increased confidence and self-esteem
- Better academic performance
- Enhanced social interactions and relationships
- Improved behavior and attention
Speech delays can have a significant impact on a child’s development and well-being, but with early intervention and appropriate treatment, most children can overcome these challenges and achieve successful communication skills.
How our Speech Program Different from Speech Therapy?
Our program is more intensive than traditional speech therapy. Unlike speech therapy, which usually entails one-on-one sessions with a speech therapist once a week, our speech program at Kidz Steps Centre provides a more intensive approach. This approach comprises of sessions that are 3 hours long, and students with speech delays are required to attend at least twice a week.
In addition, our speech program services also include circle time or playgroup, which allows children to practice their communication skills in a social setting. This intensive approach allows us to work closely with our students and their families to achieve better outcomes faster. We customize our speech program objectives based on the specific needs of the child, and we monitor their advancement through periodic assessments.
Our speech program may include:
- Articulation therapy: focusing on the production of individual sounds and improving speech clarity.
- Language therapy: focusing on improving vocabulary, grammar, and comprehension.
- Social communication therapy: focusing on improving social skills such as turn-taking, initiating conversations, and understanding non-verbal cues.
- Augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) therapy: focusing on using devices or tools to assist communication, such as sign language, pictures, or speech-generating devices.
In addition, our therapists use a variety of techniques and tools to make the therapy sessions both enjoyable and effective. This includes incorporating games, toys, books, and visual aids to create a fun and stress-free speech therapy session for the child.
