Speech Therapy

Speech therapy can improve communication skills. It can also help children who struggle with written and spoken language. This includes children with reading difficulties and language disorders.

Speech Disorders

A speech disorder is when a person has trouble creating or forming the speech sounds necessary to communicate with others. This can make it difficult for children to understand their speech. These disorders are not the same thing as language disorders. They are not the same as language disorders.

Childhood Apraxia of Speec

A type of speech disorder is childhood apraxia. It is present since birth. This condition causes a child to have difficulty making sounds consistently and correctly. It could be related to a child’s language development. Some people view it as an issue with brain signals that go to speech muscles.

Orofacial Myofunctional Disorders

OMD causes the tongue to move forward during speech and swallowing. The tongue can protrude between the upper or lower teeth when speech, swallowing, and rest. While a “tongue thrust” swallow may be normal in infancy it will usually diminish and disappear as the child grows. A child who continues to tongue thrust may have a different appearance, speak and swallow than children their age. Children older than 10 years old may be more self-conscious about how they look.

Speech Sound Disorders/Articulation Disorders

As children learn to speak, they may use some words incorrectly. Some sounds are easier to learn than others, such as p, m or w. Others take longer to learn like z or v or th. By age 4, most children can correctly pronounce almost all the speech sounds. Speech sound disorders can be diagnosed in children who are unable to say the sounds they expect by age 4.

Stuttering and Other Fluency Disorders

A speech disorder called stuttering and fluency disorder can cause significant speech problems. It involves a loss of fluency and speech flow and frequent, severe stuttering. Stutterers know what they want, but struggle to express it. As a normal part learning to speak, stuttering is common in young children. Stuttering may occur in young children if their language and speech skills aren’t strong enough to express themselves clearly.

Receptive Disorders

Receptive language disorder (or RLD) is a form of learning disorder that affects the ability to comprehend spoken and sometimes written language. This disorder is thought to be caused by differences in brain language processing centers. These disorders may be inherited or can be caused by stroke or brain injuries. Receptive language disorders are not a learning disability. They are a medical condition that can lead to academic difficulties in children.

Autism-Related Speech Disorders

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is another name for autism. Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a term that describes a person with autism who may have difficulty speaking and not understand social cues. Autism can cause some people to not speak at all while others may be able to communicate well. Autism symptoms can be seen in young children. Sometimes they aren’t obvious and may not be noticed until adulthood or school age. While signs and symptoms may change with age, there will always be difficulties communicating, social skills and behavior.

Resonance Disorders

The quality of the voice caused by sound vibrations in the throat and mouth is called resonance. Normal speech involves the soft palate (velum), and throat (pharynx), muscles that move to close the soft palette muscle when there are sounds in the mouth. When the soft palate or throat does not work properly, it can cause problems in the transmission of sound to the nasal cavity.

Selective Mutism

Selective mutism is a disorder of childhood anxiety that causes inability to communicate or speak in certain situations. This condition is most often diagnosed early in life. Selective mute children are unable to communicate in certain social settings, such as school or the community.

Jannat Noor Designation

My recent visit was for a low back pain. Having been to several physiotherapists in the past for the same problem I decided to try your practice, as I have previously been successfully treated for a neck related problem. In just 2 sessions and armed with some home exercises, my back was so much better in a much shorter time than I had experienced previously
