Speech therapy is a health-related profession that deals with verbal, nonverbal and other communication difficulties pertaining to children and adults.
All year round, children at Acsauvel benefit from speech therapy sessions.
These sessions involve a two-step process, evaluation followed by treatment. Parental guidance is always included as a necessary component of therapy.
Speech therapy sessions at Acsauvel are based on rehabilitation strategies that aim to control and stimulate the affected functions, as well as healing strategies when imminent results are not foreseen. The strategies include communication books and boards, and the makaton, motion-based, system.
Reaching ultimate results require predetermined timing and multidisciplinary work to delineate the limits of the handicap while stimulating all individual capacities and developing independence, communication and self-motivation.
