Speech & Language

Many children do not develop enough natural speech to meet their daily communication needs. Differences in communication may be present from the initial years of life, and may include delayed onset of babbling, unusual gestures, diminished responsiveness, and vocal patterns that are not synchronized with the parents or caregiver. Many children have limited speech & language skills and face difficulties with voice, articulation, language development, stammering, ability to speak after language is learned, making eye contact, poor attention, understanding simple instructions like 'give and take' and verbal cues. Many children are less likely to make requests or share experiences, and are more likely to simply repeat others' words or reverse pronouns. 

Our goal is to improve useful and functional communication based on child’s skills and decide which method would best suit the child’s ability and need. Individual speech sessions and Language & Communication group sessions are provided by a qualified speech therapist to children having difficulties in speech. PECS or Picture Exchange Communication Systems is used by us to assist children in building a concrete and useful vocabulary that is essential for communication. Speech and Language Therapy is provided to the children to develop their communication skills. The programme aims to improve useful and functional communication based on child’s skills.
