Goal of speech therapy

Risk of missing

The goal of speech therapy is to improve skills that will allow your child to communicate more effectively. There are other benefits as well. These can include:

Improvement in the ability to understand and express thoughts, ideas and feelings

Intelligible speech so your child is understood by others

Increased ability to problem-solve in an independent environment

Improved swallowing function and safety

Achievement of school readiness skills

Development of pre-literacy skills

Improved vocal quality

Fluent speech

Development of practical social skills

Better quality of life

Greater self-esteem

Increased independence

The ability to express one’s self is paramount. Speech therapy may help your child achieve a greater ability to use and understand language, to communicate with others and to express himself or herself to the greatest extent possible.

Delaying speech therapy for your child runs the risk of missing that all-important window of time between birth and three years of age when the brain is maturing and learning happens rapidly.
