Imagine helping a child to speak, read, write, or even hear for the first time. What a reward that is!
It is what Speech Language Pathologists (SLPs) do as a daily routine. SLPs treat nearly 6 million children affected by speech and language disorders. Problems can range from lack of fluency, difficulty in articulation, inability in producing sounds correctly to problems with understanding words, struggles with expressing words, and trouble with paying attention.
Speech therapy is used to help children with developmental delays, cleft palates, seizures, neurologic and/or genetic disorders, congenital birth defects, hearing loss, speech problems, and gastrointestinal issues.
SLPs help children in so many ways to ensure they can communicate in today’s world.
