Understanding the need for speech therapy
Many of us think that speech therapy is only about the treatment of speech disorders such as stuttering. However, speech therapists actually help us with much more than that. Besides speech disorders, speech therapists also treat children and adults who develop issues with communication, swallowing and language understanding, which may arise during childhood or from conditions such as Parkinson’s, stroke or a brain injury.
Through accurate diagnosis and prescribing suitable exercises, speech therapy helps us regain independence, communicate effectively and resume activities of daily living.
As with most forms of therapy and rehabilitation, speech therapy takes time and patience. Often, you will have to go through regular sessions over many months before any visible improvement can be seen. Everyone grows at their own pace to achieve their goals but the key to recovery is to keep trying and never give up.
Speech therapy can improve
- Swallowing difficulties
- Speech impairments
- Vocalisation problems
- Language disorders
- Effective communication
- Social skills
Common conditions speech therapy is useful for
Speech therapy can help individuals with autism with their verbal, nonverbal, and social communication skills.
Treatment for head and neck cancers may affect one’s speech and swallowing abilities, which a speech therapist can help improve.
Speech therapy can help children and adult with cerebral palsy who face difficulties with speech, chewing and swallowing by improving oral motor skills.
Depending on the part of the brain, dementia may affect one’s speech and swallowing abilities, but speech therapy can help to slow the deterioration of these functions.
Parkinson’s may affect nerves and muscles that control our voice quality and fluency. A speech therapist may recommend exercises to improve muscle strength and suitable assistive devices.
Individuals often experience difficulty in speech and swallowing (dysphagia) after a stroke. Speech therapy can help to improve speech and prevent aspiration and choking.

What is online speech therapy suitable for?
Through a video call, our speech therapists can help:
- Adults and seniors for communication therapy (including speech difficulties, cognitive-communication difficulties and voice difficulties)
- Infants, children, and adolescents for communication therapy (including speech and language difficulties)
In addition, for those who meet the following criteria, our speech therapists will have to an in-person visit for the first session, but follow-up appointments can be conducted online:

Online speech therapy, however, is not suitable for treating those who fall under these categories:

There is no need for any preparation.
If you have any doctor’s referral letter, previous therapy/ medical reports or investigations (X-ray or MRI), we would recommend sharing this information with your speech therapist for a more thorough understanding of your condition for treatment.

What our customers sayView all reviews
My 85-year-old mother, who underwent post-ventral incisional hernia surgery in January 2019 had CPs from Homage, all professionally trained, from leading Malaysian hospitals. The CPs nursed my mother with diligence, and compassion; providing invaluable tips on elderly caregiving to family members. My gratitude and appreciation to Team Homage.
Our experience has been very positive. So far, we have used their Care Pros perhaps 10 times (for checking in on mum) and she has been nothing short of kind and supportive. The coordinator Bel has also been a great help since day one. I find the price to be reasonable. Love the reporting feature on their app. You could see what has been done during the visit. It’s worth trying out.
I had positive experiences with Homage so far. They are flexible, affordable, and professional. The coordinator from Homage has been very helpful and accommodating to my request since day one. Caregivers assigned to take care of my (85 yo) grandmother are punctual, professionally trained and attentive. Hope they will continue to serve well.
