Speech Therapy Newmarket

Communication is an essential part of a person’s psycho-social well being and everyday life. It is through one’s communication that we get to know about a person’s wants and needs, opinions, ideas and it is how we share and have relationships with others.

The Speech Therapy Centres of Canada is a team of dedicated and focused speech-language pathologists (S-LPs or speech therapists) that provides assessments and therapy services for communication disorders. Evidence based practise is integral to our approach. Some of the more common difficulties we see in pre-school children include speech and language delay, stuttering, communication disorders associated with autism spectrum disorder, drooling and swallowing issues.

In school-aged children, stuttering, voice issues, social communication issues, speech and language difficulties and the communication deficits we see with learning difficulties and autism spectrum disorder, are commonly addressed.
In adults, stroke therapy because of aphasia, swallowing, voice issues, and communication issues observed with Parkinson’s Disease and Dementia such as Alzheimer’s Disease are widely addressed, as are accent modification and corporate training (presentations, speech writing).

Our speech therapists also assess and treat adults and children who have concussions and mild to severe brain injuries as a result of a motor vehicle accident, sports injury or a slip and fall.

Speech Therapy Centres of Canada has a dedicated department to assist clients with communication issues following an acquired brain injury (including concussion and mild to severe brain injuries) sustained in a motor vehicle accident, slip and fall, or sports injury.
Our licensed speech-language pathologists (S-LPs) and client relations team members are truly committed to providing the highest quality of service to our clients, their families and caregivers. After an assessment, our speech therapists create a personalized therapy plan. Our goal is to help every person reach their full potential and participate fully at home, within the community, and at school or in the workplace.

Speech Therapy for School-Aged Children in Newmarket

Typically developing communication skills are an essential component of daily activities for school-aged children at home, in the community and at school. These include social communication (making and meeting friends, sharing information), reading and writing (literacy), understanding instructional language in the classroom, telling stories, and expressing wants and needs.

A school-aged child’s understanding of instructional language and the increasingly more complex aspects of language (sarcasm, abstract language) are all areas addressed by speech therapists. At this age, speech therapists can assess children that are bilingual to help determine whether a child has a language delay or just needs to catch up with the language skills required for learning in the classroom.
