What You Need to Know about Speech Therapy in Calgary

Some people have trouble coordinating the movements of their oral structures, such as their lips, tongue, and jaw. These difficulties can contribute to challenges pronouncing speech sounds and can affect an individual’s ability to communicate effectively with their words. Speech therapy is the treatment dedicated to helping people say sounds correctly and speak more clearly. Talk to a Calgary therapist about speech therapy and addressing motor challenges that contribute to a speech disorder. Treatment for children often focuses on speech delays while adults may require assistance working through stutters, accent reduction, and building proficiency in English. Supporting Wellness is home to a registered speech-language pathologist who is expertly trained in speech therapy, language therapy, literacy skills support, social language therapy, and voice and resonance therapy. Speech therapy in Calgary is the first step towards communicating effectively.

Get Help From a Speech Therapist

Verbal communication is a vital part of our culture; without it, relationships can falter, confidence wanes, frustration ensues. We understand the difficulties that parents face when it comes to children with speech disorders and delays as well as the discouragement that comes from struggling with any sort of speech impediment. Speech therapy in Calgary begins with an assessment of the issues at hand and an analysis of potential solutions. For example, if your child is having troubles forming words as they read, literacy skills support may be the answer. If a teen is demonstrating timidness and avoidance of social groups, it may be an indication that they are uncomfortable or unsure of how to start or join conversations or engage in small talk and they may require support through social language therapy. Our Calgary therapist also specializes in voice and resonance therapy which can be useful for transgender people to learn how to manipulate their voice in a way that is safe and authentic and results in a tone that is more congruent with their gender identity. Call us to learn more about our services related to speech and language therapy.

If you suspect your child is experiencing a language delay or disorder, talk to us about speech therapy. A language pathologist can identify the reasons behind individuals using improper words or structuring their sentences in confusing and illogical ways.

Language therapy is for individuals who struggle to understand language. Our therapists can support these people in their struggle to follow directions, answer questions, or stay on topic during a conversation and help improve their overall abilities to understand language.

Does your child struggle to manipulate sounds in words when they are reading or spelling? Improving their phonological awareness, or sound awareness, can support a child’s literacy development and progress their reading and spelling skills.

Some people have difficulty being part of a group, having a meaningful conversation, or even making small talk with others. A speech language pathologist can teach you ways to stay on topic, follow a conversation, and relate more easily to others.

Voice resonance therapy is directed towards individuals with vocal problems resulting from abuse and misuse. We can teach you ways to care for your voice and avoid maladaptive behaviours that can result in trauma to the vocal folds.

The goal of accent reduction therapy is to modify how a person sounds when they speak English when English is their second language. This therapy will not eliminate an accent completely but rather work on building a skillset of proper English grammar and vocabulary.
