• What is Speech Therapy?

    For your child, speech therapy may take place in a classroom or small group, or one-on-one, depending on the speech disorder. Speech therapy exercises and activities vary depending on your child’s disorder, age, and needs. During speech therapy for children, the SLP may:

    • interact through talking and playing, and using books, pictures other objects as part of language intervention to help stimulate language development
    • model correct sounds and syllables for a child during age-appropriate play to teach the child how to make certain sounds
    • provide strategies and homework for the child and parent or caregiver on how to do speech therapy at home
