Introduction

Speech therapy can help someone who has a speech, language or swallowing problem. It is also used to help children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and for people with learning disabilities who have developmental delays in their communication skills. Speech therapists work with clients to improve their speech and language abilities through exercises that focus on improving articulation, fluency and/or articulatory errors.


Speech therapy, also known as speech-language therapy, helps those suffering from a communication impairment or those with a swallowing problem. Speech-Language pathologists (SLPs) diagnose and treat speech and language problems, and also cognitive-communication deficits.

Speech therapy is a form of treatment that helps people with communication difficulties. Speech therapists diagnose and treat speech and language problems, as well as cognitive-communication deficits. Speech therapists are typically employed by the government or private health insurance companies. They work in clinics, schools, hospitals and other institutions where they provide services to clients who have difficulty communicating effectively with others due to a range of conditions such as autism spectrum disorders (ASDs), developmental delay disorder (DDD) or hearing loss.

Speech therapists also help children learn how to speak more clearly so that their speech sounds more like normal conversations rather than garbled babble; this can be helpful in situations where there are multiple speakers present at once such as at parties or dinners!


Speech therapy improves communication skills.

Speech therapy improves communication skills. Speech therapy helps with social communication, understanding language and speech rhythm, intonation and clarity of speech. It also helps with articulation, the ability to produce sounds in the correct place or order (such as "S" for "S-A-P-H").


Speech Therapy

Speech therapy is a treatment for speech and language difficulties. Speech therapists help people with swallowing problems, autism, Down Syndrome and other disabilities.

If you or your child has trouble speaking or understanding words in English then speech therapy may be useful for you. Speech therapists work with children who have difficulties communicating by using gestures or sounds to express themselves better. This can be done by using exercises that help improve their communication skills such as playing games together so that they don't feel embarrassed about saying something wrong at school!

They also look at how people learn new words so that they learn how common objects are named (for example: table). They check whether there are any problems with memory by asking questions like ‘What's the name of this book?' or ‘What's your favourite colour?'


Why is speech therapy important?

Speech therapy is a vital part of a child's development. It helps them improve communication skills and lead a more independent lifestyle, which in turn allows them to attend school or work on their own.

Speech therapy can also help improve your child's swallowing ability, which is vital for eating well and avoiding choking on food. The most common areas of speech impairment are articulation (the way that sounds are made), fluency (the speed at which words come out) and comprehension (understanding what you read).

Speech therapy also enhances social interaction by teaching children how to talk with others face-to-face instead of through text messages or email messages only! This will make them more confident in public settings as well as cause less anxiety when shopping at grocery stores because they're able communicate better with store employees who may ask questions about products like milk vs yogurt vs cereal etc...


How Effective is Speech Therapy?

Speech therapy can be very effective for many people with speech and language difficulties. It is not a cure-all, but it does help with a wide range of issues including:

  • Stuttering

  • Phonological disorders (e.g., phonological dyslexia)

  • Apraxia of speech or difficulties with articulation and prosody

  • Fluency problems

Learning difficulty

Learning difficulty (LD) is a condition that affects how people learn. It can affect children, adults and people who are not able to read, write or speak well.

Learning difficulties affect more than one in five children in the UK and cost the country £2 billion per year.


Sensory integration

Sensory integration is the way the nervous system takes in information from the environment and organizes it for use. When you have a sensory integration problem, your child may not be able to use his or her senses appropriately.

Sensory integration problems can cause difficulty with:

  • Balance and eye-hand coordination

  • Hearing (hearing problems)

  • Taste/smell

  • Self-care: bathing, toileting, getting dressed or undressed

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD)

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a group of developmental disorders that can cause significant social, communication and behavioral challenges. ASD is characterized by problems with social interaction, impaired verbal and nonverbal communication, and repetitive behaviors or interests.

ASD is typically diagnosed in childhood between 18 months and 3 years of age; however it may be diagnosed later in life when symptoms are more severe or become disruptive to daily life for the individual or family. The exact cause for autism remains unknown but research has increasingly focused on genetics as well as environmental factors such as diet and vaccines that play roles in its development.


Delayed speech and language development

Speech delay and speech disorder are terms that are often used interchangeably, but they're actually very different. Speech delay is when a child's speech development is delayed compared to his or her peers' at the same age. Speech disorders include stuttering and apraxia (uncoordinated movement of the tongue, lips and jaw).

Speech impairment can be caused by many factors such as hereditary disease, brain injury or stroke; however it is most often diagnosed when children cannot produce sounds correctly on their own (sound production disorder). If you think your child may have any of these symptoms then please contact a doctor immediately!


Down Syndrome

Down Syndrome is caused by an extra copy of chromosome 21. It affects about 50,000 people in the United States and 12 million worldwide

About 1 in 10 babies are born with Down Syndrome here, but it can also occur during pregnancy when the mother's age is considered.

Diagnostic assessments for speech and language difficulties.

Speech therapists use different tools to assess speech, language and communication difficulties. They may also use other methods to assess your skills such as assessments of cognitive abilities, motor impairments and social functioning.

Assessment for speech and language disorders includes:

  • Objective testing measures such as written language tests or auditory testing (such as an Auditory Verbal Learning Test). These can be used alone or in combination with subjective assessments like interviews by a professional who has knowledge about the particular disorder you may have.

  • Subjective evaluations involve interviewing professionals who have been trained specifically in this area but do not have direct experience with your specific needs; these professionals will then report back on their findings in written reports which help guide treatment decisions later down the line.*
