and Education and Communication
Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) can help a child improve one of the most important aspects of their life: communication. They work to assess, diagnose and treat the many areas of speech and language. These areas include:
- Articulation: producing sounds correctly and clearly.
- Fluency: speaking with appropriate flow, rhythm and speed.
- Expressive Language: the use of words, sentences, gestures and writing to convey meaning and messages to others.
- Receptive Language: understanding words, gestures and concepts and the ability to gain information and meaning from the environment.
- Social Communication: communicating with others by greeting, commenting, asking questions, following rules for conversation.
- Cognitive Communication: organizing thoughts, remembering, planning and problem solving
- Oral-Motor: strengthening oral musculature and increasing range of motion to help facilitate effective eating and swallowing.
- Training on using and adapting augmentative communication devices.
Another important aspect of speech therapy services is training parents and caregiver on how to stimulate/facilitate communication.
