What you need to know about Speech and Language Therapy?
Speech Therapy is an intervention service aimed at improving speech (articulation, voice, fluency and rhythm), communication and skills of a child to understand and express language, including non-verbal language (expressive and receptive language). The speech therapists/pathologists (SLP) are professionals who provide those services.
What do the speech therapists do?
They are professionals who determine what kind of language problem has a student. They assess what is causing it and decide the best treatment. They can help the children to develop skills working with them individually, in small groups or in the classroom.
