What to Expect

Depending on the age and needs of your child, at the first appointment our therapists will carry out formal and informal assessment to work out what your child is struggling with. After that, it is possible to book for follow up sessions on a regular schedule with the same speech therapist so as to ensure continuity and effectiveness, but also to keep your child as much at his ease as possible.

In addition, you will receive a complete report and indication about the therapy plan. Our Therapists also create a tailored programme for your child in order to practice at home.

Online Speech Therapy for Children

Online Speech Therapy is not very different from face to face sessions, but it is more affordable and flexible, and it reduces waiting time. All you need to have is an internet connection and a computer or smartphone, where you can fit in the videocall.

What Can We Treat

We assess and manage children with the following conditions:

Articulation Disorders

An articulation disorder is the inability to properly form certain word sounds. A child with this speech disorder may drop, swap, distort, or add word sounds. An example of distorting a word would be saying “thith” instead of “this”.

Resonance Disorders

A resonance disorder occurs when a blockage or obstruction of regular airflow in the nasal or oral cavities alters the vibrations responsible for voice quality. It can also happen if the velopharyngeal valve doesn’t close properly. Resonance disorders are often associated with cleft palate, neurological disorders, and swollen tonsils.

Receptive Disorders

A person with receptive language disorder has trouble understanding and processing what others say. This can cause you to seem uninterested when someone is speaking, have trouble following directions, or have a limited vocabulary. Other language disorders, autism, hearing loss, and a head injury can lead to a receptive language disorder.

Expressive Disorders

Expressive language disorder is difficulty conveying or expressing information. If you have an expressive disorder, you may have trouble forming accurate sentences, such as using incorrect verb tense. It’s associated with developmental impairments, such as Down syndrome and hearing loss. It can also result from head trauma or a medical condition.

Stuttering, also known as stammering and dysphemia, is a speech disorder in which the flow of speech is disrupted by involuntary repetitions and prolongations of sounds, syllables, words, or phrases as well as involuntary silent pauses or blocks in which the person who stutters is unable to produce sounds.

Stuttering and cluttering are fluency disorders. A fluency disorder affects the flow, speed, and rhythm of speech. A person with stuttering has trouble getting out a sound and may have speech that is blocked or interrupted, or may repeat part of all of a word. A person with cluttering often speaks very fast and merges words together.

Dyspaghia is otherwise knowsn as any difficulty with swallowing, eating and drinking. This can be caused by a variety of factors in childhood. Our therapists can help identify the cause and help each child to swallow safely and effectively.

Autism spectrum disorder can affect a child’s speech, social communication skills, their ability to understand others and their ability to express what they are thinking or feeling appropriately. Autism is classed as a spectrum disorder and therefore the severity and diversity of difficulties may differ between children.

These are an acquired communication disorder that affects a person’s ability to speak and understand others. It also often affects a person’s ability to read and write.

Aphasia is when a person has a problem understanding or using words. This can make it hard to speak, read, or write. But apraxia is when someone has a hard time making the movements to speak because of a problem with their muscles.

Difficulty communicating because of an injury to the part of the brain that controls your ability to think is referred to as cognitive-communication disorder. It can result in memory issues, problem solving, and difficulty speaking, or listening. It can be caused by biological problems, such abnormal brain development, certain neurological conditions or a brain injury.

Selective mutism is a social anxiety disorder that causes children to only talk in certain environments or to certain people. Speech therapy can support children in overcoming these difficulties.

Medelit’s Approach

Medelit Home Visit Speech Therapy for children service allows an early identification of problems and a Tailored intervention with specialist support recommendations. In fact, the first step of speech therapy home visit is the evaluation. This assessment aims to better understanding the child’s needs. Once the evaluation is complete, a diagnosis will be made and a treatment plan will be developed.

Medelit’s approach combines traditional techniques with more interactive techniques, by using a mix of formal and informal tests in order to involve the child as much as possible. Our specialist Speech & Language Therapists ensure that each and every session is not just fun but effective by using a range of games and fun therapy resources. This can be particularly useful in case of an attention deficit disorder.
