Speech Therapy is —

Part of the medical profession — but it is not medicine. I am not a doctor. And yet I am able to review the facts and make a differential diagnosis.

Part of the education system — but it is not teaching. I am not a teacher. Yet I am able to help educators understand how to teach appropriately to people who are on the edge of the mainstream "system."

Not a matter of life or death — but it is a matter of quality of life. I am able and committed to helping the quality of life improve for the person with difficulties and, just as important, for those around them.

Speech Therapy can tackle —

Speech How words sound
Phonology How words get meaning from the various sounds
Literacy How understanding of sounds affects reading and spelling
Language How we understand what is being said and how we put together our sentences and thoughts
Communication How we interact with others; the pragmatics of interaction
Social How we interpret the social aspects of life including the development of friendships
Emotional/
Behaviour
How to develop emotional understanding to improve behavioural choices
