Normal Speech development

Speech Delay is one of the most common symptoms initially identified in children. It can happen before speech development starts or patients can lose speech abilities. This problem can be associated with other developmental problems and at WIN, we are dedicated to providing speech delay treatment and therapy in a natural way.

Consider speech delay therapy if your child does not meet this guideline so that he or she can be evaluated, because the earlier, the better. Using our holistic speech delay treatment and therapy, the Wellness Institute of Neurodevelopment has successfully treated thousands of patients. We perform a comprehensive evaluation to appropriately diagnose patients and be able to design a specialized speech delay treatment for toddlers and kids.

Apraxia of Speech

CAS Treatment Approaches

Apraxia of speech is defined as a problem controlling facial muscles/ movements to be able to say/ do what the patient wants to say or do. The brain knows what it wants to say or do but the patient has problems controlling the muscles to do it. For example, the patient wants to say a car and instead, she/he says tar.

This condition is divided into acquired apraxia or developmental apraxia. Acquire apraxia occurs at any age but developmental apraxia occurs in childhood.

The Wellness Institute of Neurodevelopment performs a comprehensive evaluation to appropriately diagnose patients and be able to design the appropriate individualized programs for childhood apraxia of speech treatment.
