Each individual with hearing loss experiences unique challenges and concerns. Here are several questions our team frequently receives, along with our expert answers.
If you have a concern regarding your child's communication skills, the first step is to contact a Speech Language Therapist. The need for speech therapy depends on many factors. Speech and language problems are not uncommon in children. Kids progress and develop at different rates. If you think your child or loved one is not communicating appropriate to their age, its best to get them assessed. After the assessment session the Speech Language Therapist will counsel you regarding the need for Speech Therapy.
Some common causes may include hearing loss, mental retardation or altered development of the brain before birth, autism, and cerebral palsy. Many language disorders occur without an identifiable cause.
During the evaluation process, we obtain developmental history information via a parent/caregiver interview. Parent information is also used in writing treatment goals and developing home programs. As part of the team, the parents are viewed by the SLP as valued members of the team.
Therapy frequency depends on your child's need. Typical frequencies include twice or thrice weekly.
The length of the sessions depends on your child's need. Typical therapy duration is between 30 and 45 minutes.
This depends on your child's diagnosis, and the severity of any condition they may have. Some children finish therapy in a few months, and others require several years of therapy before they are functioning more age-appropriately.
Speech Therapists aim to improve the communication ability of the person. We develop individualized programs to develop essential skills needed for communication. We also give out parent home training programs to provide maximum benefit from intervention.
