Speech therapy is the assessment and treatment of communication problems and speech disorders. The speech therapist will use certain techniques to improve communication that is missing or fix the existing one.

Most of the therapist’s work is connected to different speech disorders that children can develop during learning a language but sometimes we work with adults who’s speech has been damaged due to an injury or an illness. These brain injuries could be caused by car accidents, falls or stokes.

Aphasia is accredited as a communication disorder that affects people’s ability to speak and understand others. If it’s more severe it can prevent people from being able to read and write as well.

The expressive disorder is another common problem our patients have. This disorder prevents people from expressing and communicating information to others. It is usually connected with people who have developmental disorders like Down syndrome and hearing loss. In some cases, it could be linked to severe brain trauma which prevents people from forming full and correct sentences.

The receptive disorder prevents a person from understanding and processing information that they receive. Patients with this disorder can often look disoriented, uninterested and had limited vocabulary. The disorder can be caused by a variety of developmental disorders and different medical conditions.

Fluency disorders affect a person’s ability to speak at normal speed and rhythm. To most of you, this is known as stuttering and cluttering which can be severely debilitating and frustrating. With stuttering people have issues getting the words out or continue to say the same work over and over while cluttering forces people to speak fast and merge words.

Dysarthria is recognized by slow and slurred speech which is connected to the inability to control facial muscles properly. It can be caused by a variety of nervous system disorders, facial paralysis, multiple sclerosis, and many others.

Many other disorders affect speech, and they can be more or less serious but regardless of the complexity, our team is trained to handle them.

When you make an online reservation, a chosen doctor will do an assessment of what disorder you have and what is the best possible treatment for it. Following that we layout and plan and timeline in which we will treat it.

One of the most common questions is “how long does speech therapy take?”

There are no clear answers because it varies from the degree of speech impairment, age of a patient, frequency of therapy and treatment of the underlying medical condition.

If a problem has begun in childhood and is being tackled immediately there is a good chance it will take less than if nothing has been done until adulthood. On the other hand, certain speech disorder requires long-term therapy to make sure they are kept under control.

The success of speech therapy varies between the same factors, but it too is most successful among children. Another big influence on success is patients will to improve and be rid of their disorder. When they are motivated and involved 100% results will start to show soon and with a great effect.
