What to expect from our
SPEECH THERAPY CLINIC IN DUBAI?
Speech therapy is a medical intervention aimed at improving the communication abilities of individuals with speech and language difficulties. Speech impediments can be caused by a variety of factors including developmental disorders, neurological conditions, and injury. These difficulties can have a significant impact on the daily lives of both adults and children and can lead to further problems if left untreated.
Speech therapy provides a customized and supportive approach to addressing speech and language difficulties, helping individuals of all ages improve their communication skills. Our speech and language therapists work hand in hand with our neurology team and can help provide a holistic treatment approach for neurological disorders.
Speech therapists use a range of tests and assessments to evaluate the speech and language abilities of patients. These assessments are designed to identify any areas of difficulty and to determine the best course of treatment.
For children, the assessment process may involve play-based activities, while for adults, standardized testing is commonly used. The scientific theory behind speech therapy assessments is based on the principles of linguistic and cognitive development.
Individually Tailored Speech Therapy Plans
Our speech therapists work closely with patients, loved ones, and other healthcare providers to develop a customized therapy plan. The therapy plan takes into consideration the individual needs, abilities, and goals of each patient. Therapy sessions are designed to be interactive and engaging, helping patients to achieve their goals in the most effective and efficient way possible. On average, speech therapy sessions can last anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour, with the number and frequency of sessions varying depending on the needs of the individual.
Treatment for speech and language disorders
Our speech therapists are trained to treat a wide range of speech and language disorders, including articulation, fluency, and voice problems.
Articulation difficulties are often treated through exercises and drills aimed at improving pronunciation and clarity of speech.
Fluency difficulties can be addressed through techniques that help to reduce stuttering and increase smoothness of speech. Voice problems can be treated through exercises that help to improve the quality and pitch of the voice.
Treatment for communication difficulties
Effective communication is essential for improving the quality of life of individuals with speech and language difficulties. Speech therapists work with patients to develop the skills and strategies needed to improve communication. This may include training in the use of gestures, alternative forms of communication, and other techniques designed to facilitate effective communication.
