Speech language therapy

A speech disorder refers to a problem with the actual production of sounds. A language disorder refers to a problem understanding or putting words together to communicate ideas.

Speech disorders include:

Articulation disorders: difficulties producing sounds in syllables or saying words incorrectly to the point that listeners can't understand what's being said.
Fluency disorders: problems such as stuttering, in which the flow of speech is interrupted by abnormal stoppages, partial-word repetitions ("b-b-boy"), or prolonging sounds and syllables (sssssnake).
Resonance or voice disorders: problems with the pitch, volume, or quality of the voice that distract listeners from what's being said. These types of disorders may also cause pain or discomfort for a child when speaking.

Language disorders can be either receptive or expressive:

Receptive disorders: difficulties understanding or processing language.
Expressive disorders: difficulty putting words together, limited vocabulary, or inability to use language in a socially appropriate way.
Cognitive-communication disorders: difficulty with communication skills that involve memory, attention, perception, organization, regulation, and problem solving.
Dysphagia/oral feeding disorders are disorders in the way someone eats or drinks, including problems with chewing, swallowing, coughing, gagging, and refusing foods.

In speech-language therapy, an SLP (Speech-language pathologists) will work with a child one-on-one, in a small group, or directly in a classroom to overcome difficulties involved with a specific disorder.


Therapists use a variety of strategies, including:

Language intervention activities:
The SLP will interact with a child by playing and talking, using pictures, books, objects, or ongoing events to stimulate language development. The therapist may also model correct vocabulary and grammar and use repetition exercises to build language skills.
Articulation therapy:
Articulation, or sound production, exercises involve having the therapist model correct sounds and syllables in words and sentences for a child, often during play activities. The level of play is age-appropriate and related to the child's specific needs. The SLP will physically show the child how to make certain sounds, such as the "r" sound, and may demonstrate how to move the tongue to produce specific sounds.
Oral-motor/feeding and swallowing therapy:
The SLP may use a variety of oral exercises — including facial massage and various tongue, lip, and jaw exercises — to strengthen the muscles of the mouth for eating, drinking, and swallowing. The SLP may also introduce different food textures and temperatures to increase a child's oral awareness during eating and swallowing.
When Is Therapy Needed?

Kids might need speech-language therapy for a variety of reasons, including, but not limited to:

hearing impairments
cognitive (intellectual, thinking) or other developmental delays
weak oral muscles
chronic hoarseness
birth defects such as cleft lip or cleft palate
motor planning problems
articulation problems
fluency disorders
respiratory problems (breathing disorders)
feeding and swallowing disorders
traumatic brain injury
Therapy should begin as soon as possible. Children enrolled in therapy early (before they're 5 years old) tend to have better outcomes than those who begin therapy later.
This does not mean that older kids can't make progress in therapy; they may progress at a slower rate because they often have learned patterns that need to be changed.

Helping Your Child

Speech-language experts agree that parental involvement is crucial to the success of a child's progress in speech or language therapy.

Parents are an extremely important part of their child's therapy program and help determine whether it is a success. Kids who complete the program quickest and with the longest-lasting results are those whose parents have been involved.
Ask our therapist for suggestions on how you can help your child. For instance, it's important to help your child do the at-home stimulation activities that the SLP suggests to ensure continued progress and carry-over of newly learned skills.

The process of overcoming a speech or language disorder can take some time and effort, so it's important that all family members be patient and understanding with the child.

    I wish to express some appreciation to the writer just for bailing me out of this situation. Right after surfing throughout the online world and seeing suggestions that were not helpful, I assumed my life was done. Being alive devoid of the strategies to the problems you've sorted out by way of your main article is a critical case, as well as the kind which may have negatively affected my entire career if I had not discovered your site. Your own personal competence and kindness in taking care of every part was tremendous. I don't know what I would have done if I hadn't discovered such a step like this. It's possible to at this moment relish my future. Thanks for your time very much for this professional and effective help. I won't hesitate to refer the sites to anybody who requires tips on this issue.

    I as well as my buddies were found to be reviewing the excellent tips from your web page while the sudden developed a horrible suspicion I had not expressed respect to the web blog owner for those strategies. Most of the men were absolutely joyful to learn them and now have quite simply been taking advantage of those things. I appreciate you for actually being simply helpful as well as for picking these kinds of great subject matter most people are really desperate to be informed on. My sincere apologies for not saying thanks to earlier.

    I simply wanted to say thanks again. I do not know the things I might have handled in the absence of the type of creative concepts shown by you regarding this theme. Certainly was a very intimidating issue in my position, however , taking a look at the very well-written style you treated it forced me to weep with gladness. Extremely happier for this assistance and as well , believe you realize what a powerful job you were putting in instructing the rest thru your web blog. Most likely you haven't got to know all of us.
