Adult Speech Therapy
Speech therapy isn’t just for children. An adult’s voice is just as important. While a child’s speech and language skills are still developing, as an adult, your brain and motor skills are more advanced. That’s why we have a very different approach when we work with adults.
Aphasia is the communication disorder that occurs following a stroke. This is a result of damage to the parts of the brain that controls language. Aphasia can affect any or all of the ways we communicate. It can affect: speaking, understanding, reading and writing.
Swallowing difficulty, or dysphagia (dis-FAY-juh), can occur due to a variety of neurological or anatomical diseases or conditions, including brain injury, stroke, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis, head and neck cancers.
In adults who stutter, there is likely some childhood stuttering that has continued into adulthood or has worsened with time. Most adults seek help from a speech-language pathologist when they notice their stutter has started to affect their personal and/or work-related activities.
It’s a common belief that it is difficult to change an accent when the second (or subsequent) language was learned after early childhood. This is not the case. Working with a speech-language pathologist can make it possible to improve pronunciation and be better understood.
Whether you’re experiencing problems with your voice due to chronic illness (colds, allergies or bronchitis), exposure to irritants (like Ammonia), talking all day at work, or even just from cheering at a concert or game, Speech Therapy Centres of Canada can help you get your voice back.
