Speech is an integral part of life and is developed in the earliest years of childhood. Many factors can interfere with a child’s ability to communicate, including physical difficulties, hearing problems, language delays and cognitive challenges. Here at Canoe Therapy we have designed a thorough and effective speech language pathology program that we are incredibly proud of.
Developing speech patterns in young children is much easier than trying to correct a problem down the road, which is why we focus on early intervention. However, we work with our patients and facilitate continued improvement and learning at any stage of development. Our individualized treatment plans ensure each child has access to activities he or she enjoys and finds engaging.
Our team of speech-language pathologists uses a total communication approach, which involves various means of interacting including:
This kind of approach enables patients to have more than one way to express frustration thus limiting the amount of emotional outbursts that sometimes occur.
Our speech-language pathologists are trained using a variety of different techniques to facilitate the speech-language development of the children they work with. Some of our techniques include:
As part of our mission to provide outstanding service to each patient on an individual level, our therapists are accountable to the College of Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists of Ontario. Following the standards laid out by the College, our speech-language pathologists complete annual registration and participate in furthering education, competency assessments and clinical audits to ensure that their practices remain ethical, safe and competent.
If you’re interested in speech language-pathology for your child, contact us today or stop by and take a tour. We are always excited to work with new patients and we look forward to meeting you and your family!
