Speech-language therapy (also called speech-language pathology) for children helps with language difficulties, stuttering and voice problems.
Some of these concerns may include a child who:
- is difficult to understand
- is 2 years old and not talking
- does not seem to understand language
- struggles with certain sounds or words
- is embarrassed or frustrated when talking
To refer a child for speech therapy, you can call the Child Development Association and ask to speak with the Family Advocate, Beth. If you like, a doctor, public health nurse or another community professional can make a referral on your behalf.
