Speech Language Therapy
What is Speech and Language Therapy?
Speech and language therapy provides life-changing treatment, support and care for children and adults who have difficulties with communication, or with eating, drinking and swallowing.
Speech and language therapists (SLTs/ SLPs) are allied health professionals. They work closely with parents, carers and other professionals, such as teachers, nurses, occupational therapists.
What is the Importance of Speech Therapy?
Communication difficulties put children at greater risk of poor literacy, mental health issues and poorer employment outcomes in adulthood. Speech and language therapy is a vital service that improves children’s language and communication skills, and aids their personal development.
Speech and language therapy plays an important role in the rehabilitation and reablement of stroke survivors by assessing their needs and providing appropriate strategies to support their speech, language, communication and swallowing needs.
If your child or adult seems to be having trouble socializing at school, home or work place and you know that they have a speech issue, consider enrolling them in speech therapy. Improved communication builds confidence. Before you know it, they will be showing off their new speech skills by talking up a storm.
