The term “language” covers a wide variety of areas that are used to communicate. Children can have difficulties in one or multiple areas which can include:
- Difficulties understanding what is being said.
- Difficulties expressing wants and needs.
- Issues with word-finding.
- Difficulty reading and writing.
- Difficulty using socially appropriate language and words when talking to friends, family and teachers.
- Difficulties understanding sarcasm and figurative language.
- Difficulties telling stories or relaying information in a logical order.
Working with a speech pathologist can help to identify areas of strength and weakness. Once these areas have been identified, we work with you and your child to build on their strengths and improve in those areas they have difficulty. Therapy plans and programs are highly individualised to each child’s needs so we can get the best results possible.
