What is Speech Therapy
Speech therapy is the assessment and treatment of communication disorders. It is performed by speech-language pathologists (SLPs), which are often referred to as speech therapists.
Speech therapy can treat a broad range of speech and language delays and disorders in children. With early intervention, speech therapy can improve communication and boost self-confidence.
Speech therapy for young children has been shown to be most successful when started early and practiced at home with the involvement of a parent or caregiver.
