MULTILINGUAL NEURO-SPEECH AND LANGUAGE THERAPY
Multilingual Neuro-Speech Therapy gets its name from two main worlds. The first is that of speech therapy, a broad realm dedicated to aiding those with various language, communication, speech, voice, and hearing difficulties. This encompasses learning disorders, speech disorders, neurodevelopmental disorders, voice disorders, and auditory pathologies. Nested within this world is the field of neuro-speech therapy, a specialised profession focused on treating and rehabilitating language, speech, or swallowing disorders caused by neurological conditions. The second is the world of languages. Sofìa combines these two worlds, the world of languages and the world of speech therapy, offering her services in Spanish, Catalan, English, Greek, Italian, both Greek and American Sign Language, and Braille. Many families in Barcelona and around the world are familiar with her work and boundless enthusiasm.
CONSULTING FOR PARENTS
Personalised consulting services are for all those parents who need advice and guidance, and for those who need to be guided by a professional in the world of languages. Online or face-to-face sessions. Bilingual, multilingual or even monolingual parents tend to have many concerns or doubts about their children’s development. Their language development, their speech, how you have to help them at home when you use many languages and you don’t know which one to start with, stimulates them and helps them learn languages properly. Sofìa’s professional experience throughout the years has given her all the tools parents need. Her consulting services are not only for bilingual or multilingual parents, but for all parents who need functional guidelines and individualised instructions.
EXTERNAL SUPPORT TO SCHOOLS
Sofìa also works with schools helping to accelerate learning, in the fastest and most functional way. She is well known in international schools in Barcelona where she has been collaborating over these years, has assisted many families, their children, and the teachers themselves.
