If you suspect that your child might be struggling in an area of speech and/or language and would like some clarity around what is happening for your child, we strongly recommend you consider a speech assessment.
A Speech Language Pathologist is a professional who works with kids to determine if they are having more difficulty with speech or language than is expected at their age. A speech assessment can help determine if your child is experiencing speech and language issues such as:
- Pronouncing words
- Understanding spoken language
- Organizing and formulating spoken language
- Organizing and formulating written language (If your child is struggling in school, this is an important piece to consider)
- Speaking fluently (getting words out with appropriate speed and pace, such as help with stuttering)
- Early literacy, understanding how sounds combine to make words
Please contact Pathways Therapy for additional information regarding Speech and Language Therapy or to book an appointment with one of our Speech Language Pathologists, Tanya Elliot, Sadaf Haider or Melanie Gravel.
