What is Speech Therapy?
Children and adults can have speech and language disorders which can negatively impact relationships, making/keeping friends, navigating social situations, academics, reading, and writing. Communication requires both speech and language skills. Speech refers to how an individual produces their sounds and how intelligible, to a listener. Language is the words we use to ideas and get what we want by putting a sentence together with the correct grammar or syntax.
Speech therapy can treat a variety of disorders related to speech sound production, language expression and comprehension, fluency (stuttering), and voice disorders. Early Intervention is key to reducing or eliminating future difficulties.
