SpeechLink offers both in-home and at-school speech-language therapy for convenience and comfort of our clients and their families.
Speech and Language Pathology Assessment
As part of speech/language assessment, we interview the parents to obtain a case history. Furthermore, we observe and evaluate speech and language skills of a child. We are doing so while observing kids at play. If necessary, we will conduct speech therapy standardized testing. With parents’ consent, we might obtain information from other professionals who interact with the child.
As a result of the Assessment, our speech therapist will set the goals to facilitate self-expression, language and communication skills. We incorporate play into every session, making speech and language therapy fun and positive experience.
Speech and Language Therapy in French
Our French speaking Speech Language Pathologists provide assessments and therapy in French, for children who are currently enrolled or will be attending the Canadian French Immersion program. We provide therapy for children with articulation delays as well as language difficulties in French.
Our native speaking French Speech Language Pathologists also provide accent reduction and modification therapy in French to adults who want to reduce their accent to more closely resemble the accent of native French speakers.
As part of the assessment process, our occupational therapists will observe and evaluate the fine and gross motor skills of a child. Furthermore, they will assess and assist with other aspects of the child’s development such as feeding, social and visual processing difficulties, self regulation and emotional regulation, social skills, and learning difficulties.
At Speech Link we believe in the multidisciplinary approach – where different professionals work as a team to maximize every child’s potential and help them succeed in different environments.
In addition, in order to multiply our efforts in setting and reaching the same goals in speech and language development, we are happy to consult with other professionals who may work with your child.
Smart Group Activities
Furthermore, our social groups assist kids having difficulties communicating and playing with their peers. As a rule, fun activities include role-playing and playing games, whereby kids learn to listen, understand, take turns, share, stay on topic, and more.
We provide speech and language therapy in English, French, Russian, Hebrew, Hindi, Urdu, Cantonese, Mandarin, Arabic, and Armenian.
