Speech Therapy

Speech therapy is the assessment and treatment of communication problems and speech disorders. It is performed by speech-language pathologists (SLPs), which are often referred to as speech therapists. Speech therapy techniques are used to improve communication. These include articulation therapy, language intervention activities, and others depending on the type of speech or language disorder.

Speech therapy exercises and activities vary depending on your child’s disorder, age, and needs. During speech therapy for children, the SLP may:

  • Interact through talking and playing, and using books, pictures other objects as part of language intervention to help stimulate language development
  • Model correct sounds and syllables for a child during age-appropriate play to teach the child how to make certain sounds
  • Resonance or voice – Trouble with vocal pitch, volume and quality.
  • Provide strategies and homework for the child and parent or caregiver on how to do speech therapy at home
