What is Speech Therapy?
In order to understand speech therapy, it is important to understand speech and language difficulties. Some common areas of concern include:
Difficulties producing sounds
Voice projection problems
Language difficulties which include difficulty understanding and expression of words and sentences.
Phonology or morphology issues
Social communication issues (e.g.) eye contact and taking turns in a conversation
Speech therapy is when a certified practitioner, known as a speech-language pathologist works with an adult or child who has these difficulties and helps detect, evaluate, and treat their speaking, language, or swallowing issues.
Why is Speech Language Pathology So Important?
Speech Language Pathology is important for both children and adults.
If a child has difficulty in any of the areas listed above then they may struggle at school. It may also be hard for them to make friends or be successful in extracurricular activities. If the problems persist into adulthood there can be many after effects— socially, academically and professionally. Adults with these issues may find themselves struggling in their work and personal lives. The truth is, communication issues can have lifelong effects if they are not addressed.
How Can Speech Therapy Centres of Canada Help?
From the first call to Speech Therapy Centres of Canada it’s evident that we care about our clients and their families. It is our passion to help our clients become better communicators. With our evidence-based practice and individualised ‘whole family’ approach comprised of treatment, education and support, we can help all we touch to reach their full potential.
Why Did We Develop Our ‘Whole Family’ Approach?
Clinical studies and scientifically-proven techniques go a long way, but if you don’t understand the specific needs of the client, especially when it comes to children, it becomes more difficult to treat them. Many factors—from genetics, personality, and specific issues to family environment —play a significant role in language and communication development. Our advantage is this holistic approach where we examine and attempt to understand all contributing factors.
How We Deliver Services to You
It all starts with you calling or emailing our office. You will connect with one of our caring intake staff. They will take the time to match you with the most appropriate speech-language pathologist for your family's needs.

What’s important is that our programs are designed to include the whole family in the speech therapy process. We strive to help your family members embrace their therapy and have fun learning and growing their language and communication skills.
