How to beneficiate from the services of a therapist

The speech therapist at the center provides services mainly to the school children. She works with a child on a one to one basis, with a small group or directly in a classroom.

Speech-language therapy uses a variety of therapeutic strategies, including: language intervention activities where there is a lot of interaction between the therapist and the child, through pictures, objects to stimulate language development. In articulation therapy, there is more teaching and correction of sounds.

The therapist is available during school hours (9 to 3 pm) and on appointment during school holidays.
