Language Therapy

Communication Difficulties

Why isn’t she talking yet?

Why can’t he tell me what happened at school?

Why does the teacher want her assessed for a learning disability?

Fear. Frustration. Confusion.

Why is this happening?

What does this mean?

Can speech therapy help?

Language is different than speech.

Sometimes, language can be at the root of communication difficulties.

Speech is all about the use of sounds to make words.

But language is all about the use of words to understand and express ideas.

Identifying the problem

You can have difficulties with speech and language at the same time, but sometimes language might be the only problem.

I’ll work with you to determine what aspects of language are difficult for you or your child. Maybe the problem is finding the right words, using correct grammar, or organizing thoughts and ideas.

Whatever the problem, we’ll move forward together.
