What Is Speech Therapy?
Some people have difficulty with their articulation, fluency, voice, and use of language when they communicate with others. These difficulties can present as trouble pronouncing certain sounds, speaking without stuttering, an altered or undesirable sounding voice, or knowing how to use and/or understand words and sentences. Speech-language therapy can address these challenges through a variety of techniques such as articulation therapy, language intervention activities, and more depending on the type of speech or language disorder.
Support for school-aged children often focuses on speech, language, stuttering, or phonological delays. Adults may require assistance with stuttering, accent modification, voice difficulties, or gender-affirming voice modification.

Verbal communication is a vital part of our culture; without it, relationships can falter, confidence wanes, and 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 trouble 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.
