Speech therapy is a series of treatment modalities for patients with speech and language-related disorders.
The goals of speech therapy include improving the patient’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:
Speech therapy has also shown to be effective in addressing illness or trauma-related speech challenges, such as those caused by stroke, brain injury, nervous system disorders, or other neurological events.
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 administered in addition to speech therapy to ensure effective management.
Although speech disorders are typically first diagnosed in children, they can be experienced at any age.
