Pediatric speech therapy is a series of treatment modalities designed to help children with speech and language-related disorders improve the ability to communicate.
Since every child has unique needs, a speech-language pathologist will design a personalized treatment program to address individual difficulties and contributing medical issues.
The goals of speech and language therapy include improving the child’s ability to verbally articulate words and phrases, correcting swallowing problems that inhibit speaking, and helping overcome cognitive issues that interfere with speech.
Treatments help patients improve a variety of verbal communication difficulties, including (but not limited to) the following:
Experiencing speech and language problems can begin at any age. Early recognition, diagnosis and treatment is important and can help improve the child’s development as they continue to grow.
Children struggling with speech should be seen by a healthcare provider and screened for any contributing cause or causes, which will help determine the appropriate treatment strategy. If speech issues are accompanied by difficulty hearing, structural abnormalities, or developmental delays, then the necessary therapeutic or medical interventions should be addressed in addition to speech therapy to ensure effective management and positive outcomes. Often, treating the underlying condition affecting speech will cause the issue to improve over time.
All speech therapy programs aim to improve the patient’s ability to communicate verbally. However, different patients require unique therapeutic strategies and approaches depending on their ages, symptoms, and medical histories.
Speech-language pathologists may recommend additional interventions, or work with pediatric occupational or physical therapists providing collaborative treatments to address an underlying condition that may be affecting the child’s speech
Speech therapy can help children of all ages and backgrounds significantly improve their communication and language skills as they continue to grow.
