What is speech and language therapy?
Speech and language therapy provides treatment, support and care for children and adults who have difficulties with communication, or with eating, drinking and swallowing.
Speech and language therapists (SLTs) are allied health professionals. They work with parents, carers and other professionals, such as teachers, nurses, occupational therapists and doctors.
The ability to communicate effectively does wonders to boost one’s self-esteem and confidence. This is why we believe no child should be deprived of the ability to communicate their thoughts, emotions, and ideas to others. Speech therapy involves the management and treatment of conditions which affect a person’s ability to speak and communicate.
Our private Speech Therapists and Pathologists assess and provide intervention to help children with speech and language difficulties in Singapore. Through a customised therapy plan, we adopt a wide range of effective approaches and strategies to address each individual’s needs so as to promote their speech and language development.
To ensure that your child is ready to make the best of their primary school years, The British school of outdoor education – Speech Therapy uses specialised strategies to evaluate and support your child’s learning needs.

WHAT WE DO
We help people who struggle to communicate – through
Speech and language refer to the ability to communicate, share and express feelings, give and receive information, understand ideas and develop thoughts.
The two primary skills needed to master speech and language are Speaking and Listening.
Speech and language lay an important foundation in the development of a child’s thinking and learning abilities. Being able to listen with understanding and communicate with others, helps build a child’s social and self-confidence, which contributes to their personal growth and development. This is where speech development training and speech therapy in Singapore can be beneficial.
Toddlers with poor speaking or listening skills often show signs of speech and language impairment. These children will also often have comprehension issues, struggle with reading and face learning difficulties. Additionally, they also face a greater risk of later learning disabilities, social difficulties, academic difficulties, anxiety disorders, and behaviour problems (e.g. ADHD). Thus, it is vital to seek help as soon as possible.
Early intervention via speech therapy in Singapore can have a significant impact on a child and dramatically change their learning capabilities. Essentially, speech training for kids involves the management and treatment of various conditions affecting their ability to communicate.
If your child is showing signs of speech and language weakness, let us help! Here at Singapore Brain Development Centre, we offer an effective speech and language development program for children through Play Techniques and Auditory Training to build on speech and language skills, engagement, and two way communication.
Speech and language therapists (SLTs) provide life-improving treatment, support and care for children and adults who have difficulties with communication, eating, drinking or swallowing
SLTs assess and treat speech, language and communication problems in people of all ages to help them communicate better. They also assess, treat and develop personalised plans to support people who have eating and swallowing problems
SLTs work directly with clients and their carers and provide them with tailored support. They also work closely with teachers and other health professionals, such as doctors, nurses, other allied health professionals and psychologists to develop individual treatment programmes.
SLTs support premature babies and infants with conditions such as cerebral palsy, cleft palate and Down syndrome from very early in life who have difficulties with drinking, swallowing and early play and communication skills.
SLTs support children with primary speech, language and communication difficulties, such as stammering, as well as speech, language and communication difficulties that are secondary to other conditions such as learning difficulties and hearing problems.
SLTs support adults who have developmental conditions such as learning disabilities, autism and Down syndrome.
SLTs support adults with communication and/or swallowing difficulties as a result of medical conditions, such as stroke, head and neck cancer, Parkinson’s disease and dementia.
