What is Speech Threapy?

Speech and language therapy is the process of enabling people to communicate to the best of their ability. Communication involves listening, speaking, reading and writing. Some people use sign language, communication aids or other methods to communicate.


Assessment, Diagnosis & management of the following disorders


  • 1. Hearing Loss

    -Auditory training.

    -Vocabulary building to improve speech and language development.

    -Articulation correction (to improve intelligibility of speech)

  • 2. Mental Retardation

    -To improve self help skills.

    -Behavioral modification to reduce hyperactivity.

    -Vocabulary building to improve speech and language development.

  • 3. Autism

    -Interactive and creative play.

    -Behavioral modification to reduce hyperactivity and to improve eye contact and attention – span.

    -To improve socialization skills and social interaction.

    -Vocabulary building.

  • 4. ADHD

    -Behavioral modification to reduce hyperactivity and improve attention span & eye – contact

    -Improve vocabulary and social use of language (pragmatic skills)

  • 5. Cerebral Palsy

    -Oromotor exercise to improve muscle strength.

    -Vocabulary building.

  • 6. CLEFT LIP / PALATE

    -To reduce hypernasality / to regulate oral air flow.

    -Articulation correction to improve intelligibility of speech.

  • 7. STUTTERING

    -To reduce rate of speech.

    -Effective counseling to improve self confidence and to avoid / overcome fear and anxiety.

    -To learn how to avoid or prevent stuttering while speaking by making use of various techniques.

    -How to avoid / overcome situational fear.

  • 8. MISARTICULATION

    -Improve intelligibility of speech by articulation correction ie. Sounds difficult to be produced are taught.

  • 9. APHASIA

    -Based on the type of a Aphasia (Broca’s, Wernicke’s, Global, Anomic etc.) and its characteristics, Therapy is planned and carried out.

  • 10. DYSARTHRIA

    -Oromotor exercise to improve muscle strength and to improve range of movement.

    -Improve speech intelligibility through articulatory skills.

 

Department Of Audiology



Our centre has air conditioned two individual newly built acoustically designed sound treated room. with two room setup. equipped with high quality audiometers and impedance meters with ANSI standards calibration.

We have other tests like Auditory brain stem Response (BERA) Auditory steady state Response (ASSR), DPOAE,TEOAE, in newly built acoustically designed sound treated room.

  • 1. Puretone Audiometry (PTA)

    -Helps to rule out type and degree of hearing loss.

    -In PTA a wide range of frequencies (250 Hz to 8 KHz) are being tested.

    -Special Tests Like(SISI, TDT, ABLB, STENGER) helps to find out the site of lesion.

    -Speech – Audiometry (SRT, SDT, SAL,MCL,UCL) helps to find out the Speech discrimination level.

  • 2. Impedence audiometry

    -Helps to rule out middle ear status and function

    -Provides information regarding middle ear pressure, compliance and ear canal volume

  • 3. Auditory Brain Stem Respomse (BERA)

    Electro physiologic measures play a critical role in the assessment of hearing in infants and young children. ABR are generated by the cochlea and auditory path way neurons. ABR represents the neural activity of 8th nerve centrals and tracts with in brain stem. ABR is recorded by placing electrodes on scalp and stimulating ear with brief auditory signals.


    -It helps to provide information about degree of hearing loss in children difficult to test patients.

    -To rule out site of lesion.

  • 4. Auditory steady state Response (ASSR)

    -Helps to provide information about degree of hearing loss in children / difficult to test patients.

    -Frequency specific threshold estimation is possible (250 Hz – 8KHz)

    -Helps in providing APT amplification devices to children.

  • 5. OTOACOUSTIC EMISSION (OAE)

    Otoacoustic emissions are sound produced either spontaneously or evoked by the cochlea specifically the outer hair cells, and measured in the outer ear canal.

    There are three types of otoacoustic emission.

    1. Spontaneous (SOAES)

    These are recorded without any presentation of a stimulus and are not typically of any clinical use. They occur in about 35 to 50 % of normal hearing ear’s.

    2. Transient evoked (TEOAEs)

    These are evoked response from stimulating the cochlea with a transient signal such as a click or tone burst acoustic signal.

    TEOAEs are a wide frequency response in the 500 to 5,000Hz range.

    They typically do not occur in hearing loss of about 30 dB or greater.

    3. Distortion product (DPOAEs)

    These are evoked response OAEs from stimulating the cochlea with two simultaneously presented pure tones of different frequency. This type of OAE can be recorded in individuals with greater frequencies with more frequency specificity. DPOAEs are obtainable in the frequency range of 500 to 8000KHz.

    The presence of otoacoustic emissions suggests normal outer hair cell function, Which in turn correlates to normal hearing.
