Stuttering and Stammering
Stuttering (or stammering) affects the "flow" or "fluency" of speech. Adults who stutter may have received services when they were children and noticed their stutter returned after puberty or well into adulthood. For others, their stuttering was manageable, but now seems to be taking control of their speech. Stuttering therapy at TASC can help you reclaim control of your speech.
With Toronto's multicultural mosaic, more than half (~64%) of the adult population reports speaking a language other than English at home. This creates a rich tapestry of accents that are often misunderstood. As a result, many of these adults are seeking speech therapy services to improve their mastery of the sounds of English for both professional and social reasons.
The voice is an important part of our identity and how others perceive us. It affects how we communicate not only what we want to say, but how we want to say it. If you experience frequent loss of voice, strain, difficulty being heard, sensation of pain, etc.- TASC has an individualized adult voice therapy program that can help set you on the path to a more consistent and dependable voice.
Social communication impacts how we communicate with those around us in professional and personal environments. Whether you suffer from social anxiety or just find it difficult to make new friends, small talk, network, or be assertive in your communication, our individualized programs can help. Developing or refining your social skills as an adult is possible.

A stroke or acquired brain injury often results in the loss of speech, language and/or cognitive abilities (attention, memory, etc.) that all affect a person's ability to communicate and function in their daily lives. At TASC, we can help you and the people you communicate with find functional ways to support and develop your communication.
Traumatic Brain Injury
Scientific literature estimates that 80-100% of individuals who have sustained a brain injury experience changes to their communication. These changes are not always as apparent as physical injuries, and detailed assessment by a speech-language pathologist can be instrumental in identification and rehabilitation of a person's cognitive and communication skills.
As we age, our brains can often become afflicted with disorders such as dementia, Alzheimer's Disease, or Parkinson's Disease that can affect the way we think and communicate. Our registered speech-language pathologist at TASC will work with clients and their caregivers towards improving functional communication and quality of life.
Communication plays a critical role in professional life, particularly in today's competitive job market.
