Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) assess, diagnose,
treat and help to prevent speech, language, and
communication disorders.  Speech and language problems can
result from a variety of problems including hearing loss, brain
injury or deterioration, cerebral palsy, stroke, cleft palate, voice
pathology, mental retardation, or emotional problems.  These
problems can be congenital, developmental or acquired.  SLPs
use written and oral tests, as well as specialized instruments, to
diagnose the nature and extent of impairment and to record
and analyze speech, language, and swallowing irregularities.

Speech Therapy for Children

Speech therapy helps your child to use his or her mouth,
tongue, and breath control for eating and talking.  The use of
words is expected as your child grows and communication is
needed on a daily basis.  When language development does
not occur, as anticipated, speech therapy can stimulate the
development.  For some children, other ways to communicate
such as sign language, symbol books, or communication
boards are needed to help communicate.

Communication is a two-way process in which people exchange
information.  We send information by speaking, writing,
gesturing, and touching.  We receive information by listening,
reading, watching or feeling   Our daily activities and our
interpersonal relationships depend greatly on our
communication skills   Perhaps this is realized most fully when
our ability to communicate is interrupted.  

Communication difficulties can have a devastating affect on the
quality of our lives, isolation, and loss of self-esteem frequently
develop.  In adults, impaired communication skills can interfere
with social-verbal interactions, economic opportunities, and self-
sufficiency.  Complete withdrawal from family, friends, and
society as a whole can occur.
