Speech Therapy

What is Speech Therapy?

Speech therapy is a form of therapy designed to address speech and language disorders. Speech therapy is provided by speech-language pathologists and speech-language pathology assistants. Speech-language pathologists work with individuals who have difficulty developing speech or who cannot produce speech sounds clearly. They work with individuals who have problems understanding and producing language. They also work with individuals with voice disorders and rhythm and fluency problems, such as stuttering. Speech-language pathologists provide therapy for accent reduction and therapy for those with cognitive communication impairments such as attention, memory, and problem solving. They also work with individuals who have feeding and swallowing difficulties.
