What is Speech Therapy?
Speech and language therapy provides treatment, support, and care for children and adults who have difficulties with communication, or with eating, drinking, and swallowing.
Communication deficits are primarily characterized by receptive and expressive language disorders and articulation/speech disorders. Receptive language disorders impact a child’s ability to comprehend auditory information. Expressive language disorders impact a child’s ability to formulate thoughts into words. Articulation deficits refer to the ability to produce sounds and words fluently and intelligibly. Oral-motor skills refer to the ability to use and coordinate lips, tongue, teeth, and jaw movements for speech and feeding purposes. Feeding deficits include a person’s ability to chew and swallow food safely and effectively, as well as the ability to eat a wide variety of tastes and textures.
