Helma Osmond has been a licenced Speech-Language Pathologist since 1997. She started her own clinic in Dartmouth in 2003.
Her areas of expertise include the Evaluation and treatment of articulation and speech delays; receptive and expressive language delays in all ages; speech/language disorders resulting from stroke or traumatic brain injury; reading and writing delays, including dyslexia; speech/language development for people with Autism Spectrum Disorders and fluency techniques for people who stutter.
Helma is also the provider of SpeechEasy fluency devices for people who
stutter for the Maritimes. SpeechEasy is a patented stuttering inhibiting device. It is a prosthetic device with digital technology that delivers Delayed Auditory Feedback (DAF) and/or Frequency Altered Feedback (FAF).

This feedback has the effect of inhibiting stuttering and facilitating fluency while SpeechEasy is worn. Based on “choral speech”, SpeechEasy creates the illusion of speaking in unison with someone else. It is available in four styles: the inconspicuous and cosmetically appealing Completely-in-the Canal (CIC), the open-ear acoustics Comfort Fit (CF), the practical and easy-to-handle In-The-Canal (ITC) and Behind-The-Ear (BTE).
