How we Help
Psycholinguistic Approach

Investigates the root cause of a child’s speech, language, or literacy difficulty by accounting for the organisation of sounds and words within the child’s language-producing system (e.g., is the word/speech sound stored correctly? Is the child hearing the difference between 2 speech sounds?) The model utilises the child’s strengths as a basis for therapy.

You can find more information regarding this approach on Integrated Treatment Services.

Cycles Approach

Mirrors natural speech development in young children where easier words and sounds are typically mastered first. Error patterns occur when a child is first developing their speech sounds. These patterns are typical until certain ages (e.g. substituting the ‘r’ sound to ‘w’ sound is typical only until the age of 5-6yrs). This approach is practiced when a child presents with multiple speech error patterns, targeting 1 error for a short amount of time and then cycling through the next (e.g. in 6 week blocks). The cycle continues until all errors are eliminated.

You can find more information regarding this approach on Otsimo.
