Speech & Language

Correct hearing and auditory processing both underpin the proper development of these components. Spoken language, in particular, is a highly developed skill. Speech & language difficulties affect many children in their early years and can go on into adulthood.


Many physical capabilities can easily be recognised and at birth and during post-natal check-ups babies will be assessed on a number of key indicators. Some physical limitations are of a ‘mechanical’ nature, where the body has not developed according to plan.


Many parents may worry about their child’s hearing, especially when a child is too young to communicate verbally. Although there is usually no need for concern, we do need to be aware that hearing is a critical part of a child’s development.


How we perceive such chemical substances as odours is a mystery that, until recently, defeated most attempts to solve it.

Speech and Language

Although we have five direct senses (hearing, vision, touch, smell and taste) that ensure we can acquire information, there are only two main channels though which we can express ourselves, our body and our voice.

Sight is the ability to see clearly, vision is the ability to take what you see and do something with it.


By performance in the context of our work we mean the effective application of the inherent abilities, skills and experiences in everyday life. Consciously we may know that a particular line of action is not very useful, but still feel compelled to do it. Impulsive reactions seem to be even harder to control or change.
