Speech and Language Pathology
Who is it for? We provide speech-language therapy to children from birth to age 5.
What does a Speech & Language Therapist do? Speech-language pathologists (SLP) help children develop communication skills. The SLP is interested in a child’s understanding of language, spoken language, speech skills (articulation, voice, and fluency), hearing, gestures and body language.
SLPs explore strategies to help children communicate more effectively and to develop the best language learning environment. If a child is slow to talk, the SLP may explore other ways for a child to communicate, such as gestures/signs, pictures or voice output communication aids.
