Speech and Language 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 may be needed for speech disorders that develop in childhood or speech impairments in adults caused by an injury or illness, such as stroke or brain injury.

  • Speech therapy for children

For children, speech therapy may take place in a classroom or small group, or one-on-one, depending on the speech 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. Moreover, they provide model correct sounds and syllables for a child during age-appropriate play to teach the child how to make certain sounds. Also, provide strategies and homework for the child and parent or caregiver on how to do speech therapy at home.

  • Speech therapy for adults

Adults- Speech therapy begins with an assessment to determine your needs and the best treatment. Speech therapy exercises such as problem solving, memory, and organization, and other activities geared at improving cognitive communication, conversational tactics to improve social communication, breathing exercises for resonance, exercises to strengthen oral muscles for adults can help you with speech, language, and cognitive communication. Therapy may also include retraining of swallowing function if an injury or medical condition, such as Parkinson’s disease or oral cancer has caused swallowing difficulties.
