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 exercises and activities vary depending on your child’s diagnosis, age, and needs. During speech therapy for children, the SLP may:
Interact through talking and playing, and using books, pictures other objects as part of language intervention to help stimulate language development
Model correct sounds and syllables for a child during age-appropriate play to teach the child how to make certain sounds
Provide strategies and homework for the child and parent or caregiver on how to do speech therapy at home
