The main task of speech therapy work at the Center is to activate children to communicate and includes the following areas:

  • development of comprehension of addressed speech;
  • development of independent speech or alternative communication;
  • speech therapy massage;
  • overcoming the problems of dysphagia, i.e. difficulty with swallowing;
  • myogymnastics, i.e. a set of exercises for the facial and masticatory muscles, which are around the dentition and affect its formation;
  • development of cognitive functions;
  • prevention of secondary violations;
  • providing advice to parents.

Speech therapy work is focused on the child and his psycho-emotional features, on creating an emotionally comfortable atmosphere during classes.

Speech therapy classes have a playful focus, which allows forming a positive motivation of the child to communicate and actively participate in classes.
