Robins Physiocare Offers Speech Therapy in Gurgaon

If your child has a speech disability that includes trouble pronouncing words, speech therapy may help improve language development, communication, and pragmatic language skills. Speech therapy is an intervention service that focuses on improving a child and adult’s speech and abilities to understand and express language, including nonverbal language.

What Services speech therapy provided; –

  • Language intervention activities: 

Our staff will interact with a child by playing and talking, using pictures, books, objects, or ongoing events to stimulate language development. The therapist may also model correct vocabulary and grammar and use repetition exercises to build language skills.

  • Articulation therapy: 

Articulation, or sound production, exercises involve having the therapist model correct sounds and syllables in words and sentences for a child, often during play activities. The level of play is age-appropriate and related to the child’s specific needs. The SLP will physically show the child how to make certain sounds, such as the “r” sound, and may demonstrate how to move the tongue to produce specific sounds.

  • Oral-motor Exercise:

The SLP may use a variety of oral exercises — including facial massage and various tongue, lip, and jaw exercises — to strengthen the muscles of the mouth for eating, drinking, and swallowing. The SLP may also introduce different food textures and temperatures to increase a child’s oral awareness during eating and swallowing.

Tips for Communicating with a Person Who Has speech disorder

  • Get attention before you start speaking.
  • Keep eye contact. Watch body language and the gestures.
  • Talk in a quiet place. Turn off the TV or radio.
  • Keep your voice at a normal level. You do not need to talk louder unless I ask you to.
  • Keep the words you use simple but adult. Don’t “talk down”.
  • Use shorter sentences. Repeat key words that you want me to understand.
  • Slow down your speech.
  • Give time to speak. It may take little longer.
  • Try using drawings, gestures, writing, and facial expressions. I may understand those better than words sometimes.
  • Ask to draw, write, or point when having trouble talking.
  • Ask me “yes” and “no” questions. Those are easier than questions that I have to answer in words or sentences.
  • Let me make mistakes sometimes. I may not be able to say everything perfectly all the time.
  • Let me try to do things for myself. I may need to try a few times.
