Speech-language Therapy

Speech-language Therapy

Speech-language therapists (SLPs) evaluate speech, language, social interaction, and emergent literacy functioning in children. Parents are an essential part of the therapy process so SLPs also teach parents techniques to use at home throughout the day.

SLPs help with:

  • ​Articulation – produce sounds in isolation, then in words and phrases, and then in conversation
  • Voice – use vocal folds and breathing to produce sounds, relaxation techniques, and appropriate volume
  • Fluency – address the child’s feelings about hesitations or stuttering and teach techniques to manage the rhythm of speech
  • Receptive language – understand others, word meanings and sentence structures; follow directions 
  • Expressive language – what words to use, how to put words together, and what word combinations work best in what situations sharing thoughts, ideas, and feelings
