Speech-Mechanic Offers life- changing solutions
The speech-language system is complex. It all starts in the brain the moment a person has a thought and a need to express it. Thus, with impeccable timing and coordination, the brain engages different muscles in the chest, neck, jaw, tongue, and lips to work in harmony to produce precise, yet distinct sounds.
Sometimes- and for different reasons- this mechanism does not always function as it should. Words do not come out right or they do not come out at all. When that happens, it becomes necessary to have a skilled person with the right tools to diagnose and treat the problem. For this purpose, the Speech Mechanic came into existence.
To help you find your own passions and values
The speech-language system is complex. It all starts in the brain the moment a person has a thought and a need to express it.
To be a leading provider of communication services that empower individuals to access opportunities for success.
Everyone is born with language acquisition potential that needs to be developed and refined through diverse experiences.
Education and Healthcare
The sectors of education and healthcare continue to struggle with inequity, inequality, and other that deplorable forms of racism. The discipline of speech- language pathology is not exempt. Since opening its door to the community, the Speech- Mechanic consistently has been vocal and firm on its stance concerning those issues and the need for change. In addition to speaking out, it has taken actionable steps that include:
Making financial investments and continuing education that address understanding and interacting with people from culturally and linguistically different backgrounds.
Building a vast collection of standardized tests and then formal assessments. This means that everyone is not given the same set of tests or exams just because of their immediate availability or popularity.
Using materials that reflect a client’s cultural heritage or background
Belonging to organizations like the Charlotte Latin American Chamber of Commerce, volunteering, patronizing, and supporting businesses and events in the communities of its clients.
Providing workshops and seminars that educate professionals while introducing best practice solutions.
