1) What is speech-language therapy? Speech-language therapy provides instructional, individualized support in the areas of communication, including language development, articulation skills, social skills, hearing impairments, voice disorders, and fluency. Speech-language therapy also addresses oral-motor development and feeding skills.
2) How do I find out if my child needs speech-language therapy? A speech-language therapist can speak with you about your concerns, observe your child's developmental skills, and answer many of your questions during an initial consultation. Sometimes a child's teacher may be the first to notice a concern. If warranted, an evaluation using age-appropriate assessment tools can determine areas in which your child may need support.
3) What does speech-language therapy look like in action? Speech-language therapy is fun, dynamic, and individualized to your child's needs, goals, interests, and motivations. A speech-language therapist will get to know your child, creating a personalized therapy program to best support his/her progress in all areas of communication.
4) How can I help my child improve his or her speech-language skills? A speech-language therapist can provide many suggestions, tips, and specific activities that parents, caregivers, and family members can easily incorporate into everyday routines. Children make the most progress when parents play an active role in the speech-language therapy process!
