Speech and communication disorders are pretty common in children. You may already know a child personally or they may be a student or someone under your care.
You may notice the child may have problems hearing, or they are behind in their speech development for their age, and they may get impatient and frustrated when trying to communicate.
If caught and diagnosed early and with the right treatment, you can really make a difference in helping these children deal with their speech and communication disorder.
Join us for the Professional Certificate in Speech Therapy Assistant programme and gain the tools to assist in the assessment, screening and treatment of communication and speech disorders to help affected children and adults gain their independence and improve the quality of their lives.
Speech therapy helps in correcting for:
- Improving the child’s ability to express their emotions and ideas.
- Improving the child’s ability to communicate so people can understand them more clearly.
- Improving the clarity and quality of their speech.
This helps to boost overall confidence, and ensures the child is able to function independently and learning critical social skills from their friends. The ability to communicate opens up a world of new possibilities for children and breaks their isolation from their peer and society.
