Speech Therapy For Reading, Writing and Literacy

Pillars of Wellness, located in Burlington, Aldershot, specializes in the use of speech-language pathology (speech therapy) to help with reading difficulties and writing challenges to improve literacy overall.

The key to literacy is reading development, which involves awareness of speech sounds (phonology), word reading, phonetic decoding, reading fluency, comprehension, spelling, and written expression.

There are a wide range of reading difficulties and writing challenges from those who are diagnosed with a reading disability such as dyslexia or learning disability to those who are just lagging behind and could benefit from some focused reading assistance.

Benefits of speech therapy for reading and writing difficulties:

• Improved overall communication at home, school, and work

• More confidence and reduced anxiety

• Better attention and listening

What to expect during the initial visit?

Here at Pillars of Wellness, our speech-language pathologist, Kelly Wark, will perform a comprehensive assessment to help build a custom speech therapy plan. This may also involve working closely with your loved ones in order to keep up with speech therapy exercises at home.

Based on the assessment, Kelly will recommend a treatment plan that will fit to your needs or to your child best interest. The numbers of sessions are completely flexible and adaptable. At the end, you are the one making the final decision on what is next!

Literacy is an essential prerequisite for social well being, academic achievement, and lifetime opportunities.
