Speech-Language Pathologists assist when a child has speech or language challenges:
- Speech is the ability to produce sounds by coordinating and moving specific oral motor structures (e.g., tongue, mouth) at the right time.
- Language focuses more on word meanings, tenses and combinations.
What to expect from an assessment:
To understand what is happening, a speech-language pathologist at our Centre will often spend time observing the child, gathering information from the adults in the child’s life and complete standardized assessments. After all of this information is gathered, the speech-language pathologist will discuss assessment results and later provide a written assessment report to parents providing results, strategies and referrals that will assist the family in supporting their child.
