Speech and Language Pathalogy Unit

Our ability to speak helps us to know more about the wonderful world we live in. It helps us to communicate our ideas and emotions to other people. This act cannot be mastered by many due to a number of reasons, thus, delay in speech and language should be addressed in time. A proper therapy enables the effected people to communicate to the best of their ability.

Delayed Speech and Language

Besides hearing loss in childhood, there are other factors which can cause delay in speech and learning, such as:

  • Mental retardation
