SPEECH AND LANGUAGE THERAPY

What is Speech and Language Therapy?

Speech and Language Therapy (SP) is the treatment of speech, language and cognitive disorders that hamper the person’s ability to process and use communication. Therapy is conducted by a licensed speech and language pathologist and/or a licensed speech pathology assistant. Therapy may include work on speech (oral motor planning, articulation, phonology, volume, vocal quality, fluency, intonation, rate), receptive language (auditory processing, semantics, syntax, morphology), expressive language (morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics) as well as written forms of symbolic language such as reading and writing.

Licensed Speech and Language Pathologists will assess each child’s unique needs and create a treatment plan to address all areas of concern. Therapy for the younger child is primarily play based, helping the child to learn and use language within functional activities. An older child may have a combination of various styles of therapy in order to address specific speech and language difficulties that may be impacting overall communication and academic performance.
