Learning Disability / Intellectual Disability Speech Issues
Spectrum Speech’s Speech and Language Therapists can support parents to communicate with their child through many communication modes including pictures, gestures, words and body language depending on the level of communication difficulty. The Speech and Language Therapist will work with you and your child to set specific and realistic goals around your child’s communication.
You can expect treatment from an expert who is in tune with how best to engage and communicate with your child. We aim to successfully help your child overcome barriers to language and successfully communicate.
If your child has an intellectual Disability, we will develop a programme aimed to specifically treat their associated communication difficulty and support their language development; we will make sure this is fun for your child. The goal of speech and language therapy for Intellectual Disability is ultimately to foster optimal communication for your child. Our programme is designed to engage with your child and really empower them to feel successful as they progress with us. Our Speech and Language Therapists are ‘Hanen’ trained (www.hanen.org), which is an effective evidence based Speech and Language Intervention developed to support parents communicating with their young children.
