What is Speech Therapy?
Speech Therapy is the assessment and treatment of communication challenges and speech disorders. The goal of Speech Therapy is to improve communication.
Both children and adults can improve their speech and language skills through therapies such as articulation therapy and language intervention activities. The type of therapy used will depend on the specific speech or language disorder.
Our Speech and Language team specializes in assessing, diagnosing and treating communication challenges and speech disorders.
We focus on speech intelligibility, receptive and expressive language, social language, fluency, and executive functioning.
Our goal is to help children and adults more effectively communicate in their home, school, and communities.
What Can I Expect?
Speech therapy exercises and activities for children can include:
- interacting through talking and playing
- using books and pictures as part of language intervention to help stimulate language development
- modeling correct sounds and syllables
Then our trained speech therapists provide strategies and “homework” for the child and caregivers to continue the work at home.
For adults, we begin with an assessment to create your tailored treatment plan.
Speech therapy exercises and activities for adults can include specific work designed to improve speech, language and cognitive communication.
Adults in speech therapy can expect to do several exercises targeted at improving a specific challenge you’re experiencing. Examples of adult speech therapy activities include tongue exercises, smiling, reading out loud, or playing games.
