Hearing is an essential part of effective verbal communication. Loss of hearing can hinder normal speech and language development in children, cause communication breakdown, and over the long term, lead to social isolation.
It is our desire to assist you with sensitivity to better understand your own hearing, the impact it has on your daily functioning, and what can be done to get access to optimal communication function again.
Although Speech-Language Therapy encompasses a wide field of treatment, LOURENS Speech Therapy has a specific (although not exclusive) focus on the evaluation and treatment of speech, language and swallowing disorders related to neurological impairments. We work in both the paediatric and the adult populations.
Physiotherapy is an evolving occupation, which aims to improve the physical function of patients. This is achieved by decreasing pain, increasing strength and mobility and re-teaching movements that a patient’s body cannot perform.
Occupational Therapy joined the STEPMED team in 2010. This growing practice works in the clinical areas of neurology and physical rehabilitation in the adult as well as the paediatric fields.
