It’s Never Too Late for Speech-language Pathology Help
“It’s never too late to be who you might have been.”
– George Eliot
You can be too late for appointments and too late for work, too late to take up a challenging hobby and even too late for dinner. But it’s never too late to seek help from a speech-language pathologist for yourself or your child.
Any person who has a communication disability or difficulty will benefit from the strategies, skills and support that a Speech-Language Pathologist can provide through an intervention session.
Language delays and difficulties are common in young children and many disappear as the child develops, but most language disorders benefit greatly from early intervention. Since speech problems may inhibit socialization and learning, children who experience speech or language disorders will benefit from early intervention in other ways as well.
When it comes to adults, weeks, months or even years of frustration and embarrassment can be avoided by starting treatment early for speech or language problems that arise as a result of disease, disability or accident, such as stroke or brain injury.
A Speech-Language Pathologists will assess each individual who presents with a communication problem, to clearly determine the nature of the difficulty, create a personal treatment plan and then work with the individual to offer them techniques and strategies, which can be incorporated into day-to-day life.

Our clinicians are client-centered and emphasize functional activities so that therapy is related to the client’s life rather than removed or abstract.
