Communication is a gift we often take for granted.
There are few things more frustrating than trying to express yourself when speech fails you.
Speech disorders make it difficult to share even the simplest ideas and can lead to social isolation and depression.
Our experienced Speech Therapists can help you improve the way you communicate. Some of the common speech disorders we assist with include apraxia and dysarthria.
If you have apraxia of speech, you will have difficulty with the motor processes involved with using speech, you may know exactly what you want tpo say but be unable to verbally produce it. This may cause you to say something very different from what you actually mean.
Dysarthria can happen at birth or as a result of illness or injury where the muscles involved with speech production are impaired, this may result in slurred speech and imprecise articulation making it difficult for people to understand what you are saying.
