What is Speech Therapy?

Speech therapy involves providing guidance and adequate support to children with challenges in the areas of speech, communication, and language modalities. The therapy is given under the controlled guidance of speech-language pathologists (speech therapists), who are highly trained clinicians with many years of experience in the field of communication sciences and associated disorders, they are also licensed to assess and treat children with speech and language development challenges.

The terms'speech' and ‘language’ are often used interchangeably. However, these are individual terms and differ in many aspects. For instance, a child may have difficulties with either speech or language. In some cases, a child may face difficulties in both areas. Speech therapy is given to mainly address the following:

  • Errors related to sounds.
  • Difficulties faced by children in saying their words.
  • Motor speech disorders, such as childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) or dysarthria.

If you are worried about the speech development of your child, we would recommend an SLP to address your queries and apprehensions.

Speech therapy under the guidance of a speech-language pathologist may be beneficial for your child who is facing difficulties, which are listed below:

How Our Pediatric Speech Therapy Works

A pediatric speech therapy session is aimed at training and helping children articulate their own speech sounds. It also helps them understand the speech of others.

Our training plans include:

  • Practicing articulation and phonology using fun games
  • Special activities for improving speech
  • One-on-one instruction by specialists

As experienced speech-language pathologists working with children for years, we focus on the three most important areas of communication:

1. Speech

2. Receptive language

3. Expressive language

Speech Training: Our primary focus is to use discrete sounds and consonants to improve children’s speech skills. We help children practice the articulation of these sounds. As part of training, we work towards minimizing stuttering, cluttering, and other fluency disorders.

Receptive Language Skills: The training involves helping a child understand what is being said to them and how to respond. Improving receptive language skills encourages them to answer correctly to the questions being asked of them, follow directions, and give a natural reaction while facing social situations.

Expressive Language Skills: To improve, we practice how to combine sounds into words, words into phrases, and finally phrases into sentences.

We believe that healthy and effective speech-language development techniques must include all three skills listed above. These need to be executed on an equal footing under the guidance of an experienced specialist. This is exactly what our pediatric speech therapy services in Delhi include.

At Child Therapy Needs, we aim at helping kids and toddlers get the best pediatric speech therapy.

Speech Therapy Sessions

We offer varied speech therapy sessions for children. The exact therapy required is determined after assessing the following:

  • The type of disorder
  • The origin of the disorder
  • The age of the patient

A typical session for a child at our speech therapy centre in Delhi usually lasts for 45 minutes. We conduct one-on-one sessions for maximum benefits. As professionals experienced in handling children with speech-related disorders, we appreciate parents being fully involved in these sessions. This is an important part of making parents aware of things that need to be practiced at home for quick results.

What Parents Say About Us

Neha Verma, Gandhi Nagar

It has been three weeks of speech therapy sessions from Child Therapy Needs for my son, and I am very impressed with the progressive improvement displayed so far. The therapist helped a lot in resolving articulation issues, due to which my son’s speech is crystal clear and he has started speaking well.

Payal, Chandra Nagar

Child Therapy Needs has proved to be a boon for my child. I consulted the team to get therapy done for autism and major echolalia issues. I had noticed that my kid failed to respond and understand normal conversations. After undertaking therapy sessions for around three and a half weeks, my child now understands phrases and even responds to simple daily life questions. I am thankful to the entire team and especially grateful to the therapist, who is very patient, understanding, and supportive.

Ruchi Sarna, Rajgarh Colony

I had visited Child Therapy Needs for consultation for my nephew, who had severe articulation issues. We were worried about his speech, which was not at all clear. We had a tough time understanding what he was trying to convey. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Aastha ma’am and her team. They guided us with the best therapy for Aditya during the consultation session. We are seeing gradual improvement in him.

Pragya, Nirman Vihar

Child Therapy Needs is the best place to treat kids with speech challenges. The best thing about the place is the way the team treats kids. My child was treated with full respect. The team offered detailed guidance on the way the treatment will start and progress. They also provided home interventions to improve the child’s speech. After the speech therapy sessions, we helped our child practice at home too, which eventually brought about a positive change in him.

FAQs

1. What is a duration of speech therapy for a child?

The exact period will depend on the speech-language needs of the child. Each child is unique and needs therapy based on his/her condition. Our team of therapists will evaluate the child’s needs during an initial consultation session before determining the exact frequency and time of therapy. In some cases, we will call the child to attend once or twice weekly for 30 to 60 minute sessions. Later on, the therapy duration is increased if needed.

2. What role parents have to play in speech therapy?

Since therapists have only limited time available for attending a child, we would recommend parents to take responsibility of assessing the child’s progress. We encourage parents to actively get involved in the therapy from the starting stage of setting goals. Parents should also help a child do the therapist’s exercises at home. Our therapists will help by sharing instructional videos with the parents.

3. Are speech disorders different from language disorders?

Yes. Speech disorders are characterized by difficulty shown by the child in speaking those words. For instance, the child will face challenges in saying specific words/sounds correctly (referred to as articulation difficulties). On the other hand, language disorders cause challenges in understanding different words or instructions. These disorders also cause difficulty in using age-appropriate words or sentences.

4. Is speech therapy beneficial for children with learning disabilities?

Yes. Speech therapy is immensely helpful for children with learning disabilities such as Down syndrome or Autism. A speech therapist will administer this therapy to the child with an aim to develop better speech patterns. It will also help children express themselves in a better way. Speech therapist will help the child become a better listener and develop skills to follow simple instructions and answer questions.

5. Do I need to attend my child’s speech therapy session?

Yes. We highly recommend parents to take part when the child’s therapy is progressing. It is important for attaining success. Usually, parent participation may include:

  • In-room therapy participation
  • Completion of home activities
  • Out of room observation (through observation rooms)

6. How can I schedule an appointment?
