Speech and Language Therapy focuses on communication and addresses the following areas:

  • Articulation difficulties (speech sounds): difficulties producing certain sounds, substituting some sounds for others.

  • Language difficulties (both understanding spoken and written language, and expressing yourself with language). Difficulties here can have a detrimental effect on our understanding of the world around us, and our ability to participate.

  • Social skills (pragmatics). Difficulties with language and our ability to understand the world around us often have a flow-on effect on our capability to engage socially. This can also lead to low self-esteem and feelings of exclusion.

  • Behaviour issues (often tied to difficulties with communication in general). Our work here often addresses fundamental issues around emotional regulation (closely tied with Occupation Therapy).
