Speech Therapy

Speech therapy is a specialized field that merges clinical psychology with speech-language pathology. Its mission is to evaluate, diagnose, rehabilitate and treat disorders ranging from speech and communication to swallowing, affecting people of all ages. Speech therapists work with a wide range of conditions, including speech and language developmental, autism spectrum disorders, reading difficulties, articulatory speech disorders, dysfluency, swallowing problems, sequelae from cerebrovascular events, neurodegenerative diseases, and others.

Speech therapy goes beyond correcting linguistic problems; it focuses on improving the quality of life of each patient with a personalized approach. It involves specific techniques and collaboration with other professionals to comprehensively address linguistic, communicative and/or swallowing development. This not only restores the ability to speak, but also empowers patients for full participation in their daily and social life in a comprehensive and holistic approach.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, it is a common myth that speech therapy only benefits children. In fact, adults can also benefit greatly from speech therapy. With adults, speech therapy can address a variety of areas, such as rehabilitation after stroke or traumatic brain injury, voice disorders, speech fluency problems such as stuttering, communication difficulties due to neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s, swallowing problems.

Some signs that a child might benefit from speech therapy include difficulty pronouncing words, delays in speech development, difficulty understanding language, trouble forming sentences correctly, and difficulty following simple directions. It is important to consider the expected language skills for the child’s age and compare them to the child’s current development to determine if additional intervention may be needed.

Some signs that you may benefit from speech therapy as an adult include difficulty communicating effectively at work or in social situations, voice changes, difficulty remembering words or following conversations, and trouble understanding complex instructions. In addition, if you experience frustration, anxiety or embarrassment related to your communication skills, it could be an indication that speech therapy may be beneficial. Also, if you have experienced a traumatic brain injury, stroke or if you are having trouble eating and drinking fluids and it is affecting your activities of daily living, it is important to consider speech therapy as part of your recovery process. If you have concerns about your language skills or feel you could improve in any aspect of communication and/or swallowing, consulting a speech therapist can provide clarity and support to address your concerns.
