Speech-Language Therapy (SLP)

Home » Speech-Language Therapy (SLP)

Speech therapy is a treatment for kids with speech and/or language disorders. A speech disorder refers to a problem with the actual production of sounds, whereas a language disorder refers to difficulty understanding or putting words together to communicate ideas. By assessing the speech, language, cognitive-communication, and swallowing skills of children, speech-language pathologists can identify types of communication problems and the best way to treat them.

Speech therapists specialize in evaluating and treating speech and language disorders so that children can communicate better.
