When should you seek out speech therapy services?

A speech and/or language problem exists when a communication “breakdown” occurs between the listener and the speaker. Speech therapy helps fix these communication breakdowns for people of all ages.

Children may require speech therapy if they:

  • Are not saying enough words or are not communicating functionally
  • Have difficulty understanding language or do not follow directions
  • Cannot pronounce certain sounds or are difficult to understand
  • Cannot respond appropriately in social situations
  • Have trouble with eye contact, turn-taking, sharing, or pretend play

A number of indicators can be used to determine whether a child needs speech therapy, such as delayed or unclear speech development, trouble understanding or following instructions, limited expressive language abilities, stuttering or fluency issues, social communication challenges, oral motor challenges, and hearing impairment.

In order to decide if speech therapy is required depending on the child’s individual requirements, it is crucial to seek the advice of a speech-language pathologist in Ottawa,

The therapists at Speech Specialists are strong proponents of early intervention. Speech therapy is significantly more successful when children are young because their brains are very responsive to language development. Early intervention also ensures symptoms won’t get worse over time. With this approach, the impact of communication breakdowns are reduced for children and their families. 

Adults may seek out speech therapy if they:

  • Stutter or have dysfluent speech
  • Have unusual voice quality, pitch, or loudness
  • Have an accent or dialectal differences for second language learners
  • Suffer from language loss or slurring due to a stroke
