Despite all our efforts, the delay before meeting a speech therapist at our clinic is currently of a few months. In order to rapidly offer our services to children who need them, the Clinique d’orthophonie du Suroît is now offeringlanguage stimulation workshops for preschool-aged children. The workshops are offered by our language stimulation agent, who is also in charge of regular follow-ups with young children who visit our clinic. During each workshop, games will be used to work on a specific aspect of language development (ex. production of complete sentences, vocabulary development, etc.). The stimulation agent will therefore lead various activities with groups of three or four children of similar age. The parents will be invited at the end of the meeting to discover how to reproduce the activities at home and how to stimulate the skills that were taught on a daily basis. Language stimulation workshops are an excellent way to quickly work with your children and to aid language development as early as possible. A speech therapy assessment is not required to participate. The workshops are therefore a great solution in order for your child to receive the help they need, either while waiting for an assessment or as an affordable alternative to individual interventions.
