Underestanding Speech Therapy & What to Expect
Our approach to therapy is transparent, science-backed, and empirically validated.
Speech therapy assesses and treats aspects of speech and language to remediate and improve functional and effective communication. A speech-language pathologist provides speech therapy by supporting an individual’s strengths, and applying evidence-based therapy techniques to address their communication challenges. For a child, communication challenges might include speech sound errors, language use, language understanding, word retrieval, social interactions, and working memory. A goal of speech therapy is to help children communicate with peers and adults, as well as understand and interact successfully with them.
