Thank you to our Royal Speech & Language Pathologist MIss Giroux and her Assistant Mrs. Jones.
One in six people have a speech, language or hearing disorder. When communicating with someone who may have weak skills in one of these areas, you may need to:
- Keep your sen tences and questions short
- Allow extra time for responding
- Be an active listener and take a guess, pay attention to eye gaze and gestures
- Reduce background noises that may be distracting (i.e. turn off the radio or t.v. or move to a quieter area)
