What is Speech Therapy?
Speech Therapy is the assessment and treatment of speech delays and communication disorders. This includes, but is not limited to, fluency, articulation, language intervention, communication devices, and regaining skills after stroke or brain injury. Speech Language Pathologists create individualized treatment plans to help children be successful in reaching their goals and maintaining their skills as they grow.
