-- According to Statistics Canada, more than 5.3 million Canadians—almost 16% of the population in this country—are living with some form of disability that affects their level of freedom, independence, or quality of life. Of that number, over 200,000 are children and youth.
Speech-language disorders are more common in Canada than most people are aware of. Estimates indicate that eight to 12 percent of pre-school aged children have some form of language impairment. Most are not identified until well after they fail to begin speaking, generally when they are two or three years old.
"Most people are diagnosed with a speech disorder at birth or during infancy," - advises Farshid Farhangian – "we, at TalkZone, want to introduce a new, fast, and highly efficient system for Canadians that will provide alternative choices of speech and language therapists for kids. The platform will be updated regularly to ensure real-time online availability, secured connection, and professional approach to every user of our platform."About us:
