What is Speech Therapy?

Quite simply put, Speech therapy is an intervention service, for speech and language disorders.

In children who have difficulties communicating their wants and needs, either verbally, or nonverbally, speech therapy not only works on training the mouth to create sounds that form words and sentences, in order to address articulation, fluency, and voice volume regulation, but also, understanding and expressing language in order to address the use of language through written, pictorial, body, and sign forms. It also encourages the use of language through alternative communication systems.
