Find out more

Shanghai Speech Therapy is a health consulting practice that helps children of all ages find and recover their voice.

Children may be found experiencing the following challenges:

  • Speech delay
  • Mispronouncing sounds
  • Unclear speech
  • Difficulty learning two or more languages
  • Trouble understanding or using language
  • Stuttering
  • Trouble with feeding or eating
  • Trouble with reading and writing
  • Unusual voice quality or improper use of voice

Addressing communication issues early in a child’s life is invaluable to the growth journey.

Every child has been given a voice, some just need help learning how to use it best.

Shanghai Speech Therapy (SST) provides speech and language therapy services through in-person sessions in the city of Shanghai and through online sessions (telepractice) across Asia.

Since 2015, SST has been present in the Shanghai community, collaborating with families, schools, and medical institutions to offer a breadth of services that empower, equip, and educate. We prioritize trust and partnership in every interaction, coming alongside the child and their family on their journey.

With a wealth of experience working with diverse pediatric diagnoses, therapists at SST bring a depth of insight to their therapeutic approach. We are overseas-trained, leverage new methods and technologies from the field of speech language pathology, and offer therapy in English and Mandarin Chinese.

Shanghai Speech Therapy is committed to giving hope to a child’s journey.
