Speech therapy

As part of our remedial lessons CityKidz aims to ensure that no child is left behind. We offer speech therapy through our close association with the Wits Speech Therapists. Wonderful, creative one-on-one support which is making a REAL difference in our children's lives.

Thank you Fatima.

Speech therapy is a form of therapy that can help people improve their communication skills. When people can communicate effectively, they feel more confident in social situations. Speech therapy can help people who are anxious about speaking in public or in social situations. Speech therapists can teach people relaxation techniques and strategies for coping with anxiety. Speech therapy can be particularly impactful for children as it supports their development in crucial areas. By improving a child's ability to understand and use language, speech therapy sets them up for success in school. They can better grasp instructions, participate in discussions, and learn new concepts. Speech therapy helps children express themselves effectively, fostering friendships and reducing frustration caused by communication difficulties. When children can confidently communicate their needs and ideas, it boosts their self-esteem. They feel understood and valued, leading to increased participation and social connection.
