SPEECH THERAPY

Speech Therapy

Speech Therapy (ST) helps children develop and maintain communication and language abilities. MAGIS currently offers this service for children aged 2 – 12.

Often, ST has focus on, but is not limited to disorders in: articulation, fluency (such as stuttering), resonance/voice, expression and comprehension, and oral feeding.

Our therapists are responsible for the evaluation, planning, and implementation of a program focused on habilitation and rehabilitation of pediatric cases. Clients in either of these therapies may come from the context of a delay in early development, trauma, injury, or physical disability.

 

Beginning Therapy

Before registering for any developmental therapy session with MAGIS, a report from a developmental pediatrician is required. You may choose to schedule one at Makati Medical Center through MAGIS.

Both types of therapy begin with a multi-session Initial Evaluation, which concludes with an evaluation meeting with the child’s parents and the therapist. A number of sessions will be recommended, in which goals are set to be achieved.

For assessment purposes and further observation, home or school visits may be recommended to gain a more comprehensive understanding of a child’s day-to-day environment.
