Has someone you love lost the ability to communicate?
Are you struggling to find the right words?
The fact is that one in two Albertans will be touched by a disability — either personally or in the immediate family. Losing the ability to communicate is a traumatic, life altering experience.
But it doesn’t have to be. No matter what the situation feels like now, it’s important to realize that communication skills can be re-learned.
Speech & Language Works gives teenagers and adults the confidence to communicate.
We’re the experts in client-centred care.
Our service begins with an initial screening. An experienced team of speech and language development experts then make an assessment and provide a diagnoses. With over 40 years combined experience in treating speech and language development issues in children, the team at Speech and Language Works then provides timely consultation, advice, intervention and treatment.
When it comes to speech-language pathology, we do it all. We’ve worked on a wide variety of cases:
- Language difficulties as a result of stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, Multiple Sclerosis or Parkinson’s disease
- Issues arising from cancer, Cerebral Palsy or head injury
- Hearing loss
- Stuttering or voice disorders
- Learning difficulties including Dyslexia, Specific Language Impairment (SLI), Auditory Processing Disorder
- Accent Reduction
Best of all, there are no waiting lists at Speech & Language Works. And all of our services are covered by most private insurance providers.
Of course, not every speech and language issue is cause for concern. Many changes are a natural part of the healing process. If you are unsure about your situation, give us a call.
