Whether your child has a speech, language difficulty, or learning difficulty, it’s important to get the right diagnosis and start on therapy as soon as possible. Pika Sen is a Consultant Speech-Language Therapist at Imagine If with 25 years of experience in early intervention, speech-language therapy and voice therapy for children aged 2 to 12.
If your kiddo is a budding singer or actor, Imagine If also offers voice-therapy to prevent injuries and keep their voice in good working order. Here’s how the bespoke therapy at Imagine If can help your child unleash their inner voice.
Whether your toddler has difficulty making the correct sounds or your older child has a stutter or any kind of speech difficulty, the Imagine If programme can help. The first step is diagnosing the issue and early intervention is often key! Imagine If offers a unique and tailored mapping of each child’s needs.
If your little one has trouble understanding what is said to them, there are a number of language disorders that need to be ruled out. After an assessment, therapy is conducted in a one-to-one setting or in a group, based on the child’s specific needs. There’s a truly inclusive and international setting at Imagine If that’s key in making your child feel comfortable to open up, as it often takes patience in improving a child’s abilities.
